Here is a review of Heavenly Veggies, sent in by one of our readers:

Today I went to this new vegan restaurant that opened on Monday (April 30, 2012) called Heavenly Veggies. I’m not vegan or vegetarian, but I don’t eat a whole bunch of meat very often. My boyfriend and I are seniors at JFK, and since its close we just walked there after school. They were serving enchiladas and tacos! Now, my boyfriend is half Mexican. He’ll tell me whether some Mexican food we’re eating just isn’t good. He loved it. By the time we got there though, there were no enchiladas left, but I hear it was delicious! The tacos were homemade with whole-wheat flour! All the food was super yummy, we had a cold soup gazpacho made up of tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and more. There was some Mexican rice, and the taco fillings were splendid! I really didn’t miss the meat! It was his first time eating a vegan meal too, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything at Heavenly Veggies is made right there in the kitchen. It’s a lovely restaurant too. Gigantic windows letting in lots of light, everything looks and smells so clean, and they have soothing music and beautiful pictures playing on three big TV screens for you to enjoy while you’re eating. It’s a kind of food court setting, where you get your main course, starch, choice of soup or salad, and a veggie dish. Or you can choose to get a little bit of everything, for the same price - $6.50! They also have fruit blends (smoothies) and water, and are promising some vegan desserts to come! Now here’s where things get even better. Heavenly Veggies is a wellness restaurant, and the staff are from the New Start kitchen – and Roxanne Lee from China Wok in GPO Food Court. If you don’t know who she is, she’s only the best baker around! China Wok sells vegan foods as well: fresh lumpia, wraps, cold noodles, fruit boxes. They also have the occasional vegan dessert, and they are absolutely delicious! All of her cakes are rich, moist, and lacking nothing! So to hear that Roxanne Lee is in the kitchen at Heavenly Veggies… no wonder the enchiladas were wiped out! They have a weekly menu with minor changes from day to day. You can find the menu online at , they have weekly updates. They may not have much now because they just opened, but Heavenly Veggies is promising much more foods to come, so be sure to check the place out! They’re open from 11am-2pm on weekdays only, and are located behind Club Rapture (to the left of and behind American Music). There’s a great big banner saying “Heavenly Veggies : homestyle vegan cooking” when you go down that road just to the right of Club Rapture, you can’t miss it. Have a good lunch!
