The Now and Zen restaurant closed a couple of years ago, but Now and Zen still makes the un-turkey, cookies, whipped topping, fake ribs, fake steak, and other yummy vegan stuff. You can get these things at health food stores like Rainbow Grocery (S.F.) or Whole Foods. And, might I add, no restaurant has since been able to fill its now empty niche. Herbivore in le trendy mission doesn't even come close.
For more asian flavored cuisine, Golden Lotus
(Franklin and 13th) has Black China Bakery
vegan cakes and tasty, affordable fare. I recommend the garlic 'beef' special. There's a sister store with the same menu on O'Farrell
in the 'loin
but I forgot what it was called. Around Jones and Taylor. You can also get Thai iced tea
made with soy milk
