“Buddha Bodai on Mott st, Chinatown. Kosher vegan dim sum. Need I say more?! The vegan BBQ pork bao and anything actually with BBQ pork will leave you obsessing over your next fix. Amazing authentic dim sum in an authentic dim sum venue. Yum.”
Mayim Bialik, CBS's The Big Bang Theory, Author of Mayim's Vegan Table, @MissMayim
“Time and again, Buddha's super, taste-saturated vegetarian dim sum gratifies the meat tooth as well as the veg. Noteworthy items include pan-fried dumplings, watercress dumplings, House Congee, tofu skin with veggies, sticky sweet rice balls with peanuts. tapioca sweet dumplings, jellyfish, "beef" rice roll, and the turnip cakes. Buddha is also certified Kosher.”
