She's right....there's not much good about NJ, but Veggie Works helps make up for that .

Yet another Veggie Works update: Someone who works there bought the place from the current owner. They are staying in the same location in Belmar. They will be closing on Dec. 15 for a couple of weeks or so for renovations, and will reopen with the new name "Kaya's Kitchen". The menu will be smaller, but similar type of food I believe.

Thanks for the update VKK! Although I was kind of hoping they would move to Red Bank...it's closer to my school. I like Kaya's Kitchen...very Bob Marley.

The building that The Golden Teapot Restaurant was in was condemned and they are closed. Has anyone heard of them re-opening in a new location?

Not only was the food wonderful, but the owner was an incredibly nice guy.

The mini mall had a fire. It will probably reopen but not any time soon. Other bad news, Singapore vegetarian in Cherry Hill is no more as of last month. Its now just a standard Chinese place.

On a more positive note, they re-opened Veggie Works with the name Kaya's Kitchen. It was delish! I am sad they did away with a lot of stuff on their menu though, including the salad bar. But, it was awesome regardless!

Singapore was my absolute favorite (alright, aside from Gianna's in Philly). We wanted to order take out from there for Valentine's. When my b/f picked me up from work that day he looked like he was about to cry, then he gave me the bad news. But he said another place opened up 2 doors away from it. It's called Golden Duck and has a similar menu to Singapore, but much smaller and has non-veg options as well. Food tasted pretty much the same, but I miss being able to pick ANYTHING from the menu and not have to get it specially modified and then be paranoid that they got the order right I wonder if the Singapore in Philly is still there?

No thats the same place, same owner by the way. I dont know why they did the change, all they needed was some advertising to pick up more business. They were doing great with considering it was all word of mouth to begin with.



We looked at the menu they had posted and it only had a few vegetarian items so we didnt go in.



The one in Philadelphia is still there, im just not going out of my way for it.

There's also a place, Zafra's, in New Brunswick, which is cool since there's other things close by in terms of entertainment, State Theater, Old Bay (great little bar).

If anyone is in New Brunswick, there's this Indian place called Thinisu with vegetarian and vegan stuff marked on their menu. The prices are pretty decent, the food is good, and the people there are really nice.

For those of you from the north jersey area there is a new veggie restaurant opening in Upper Montclair. Its on valley road across the street from the Gap. It says its Veggie Heaven. I don't know if it is connected to either the veggie heavan in Parsippany or Teaneck, but I'm excited. I heard it will be open before the summer.

They're open now. Me and my friend drove by there tonight just to make sure we knew where it was, and noticed it was opened. They opened last week. It's very nice inside, and even has an upstairs dining area.

Yes! There is an AWESOME vegan restaurant in Red Bank...I believe that is near Linden. It's called "Down to Earth" and is on where Broad Street and Front Street meet. Go to MapQuest to find out the directions from your destination.
