Steamed Chinese leeks, mashed broad beans and minced tofu; hard to argue with this!
Fresh Lettuce Wraps
Fresh lettuce filled with vegetables and mushrooms; looking good here too.
Sweet and Sour Cabbage
Cabbage, carrots, cucumber and sauce; I’d ask about the sauce first, could be salty.
Blanched spinach, citrus soy sauce and sesame; soy sauce might turn you off, I’m okay with it.
Edamame; very cool, plain and simple!
Soup with pumpkin and carrots; talk to the waiter, salt MIGHT be an issue.
Asparagus soup and coconut milk; same deal with the salt.
Bay Leaf Salad
Spinach salad, tofu, tomato, raisins, nuts, and dressing made with olive oil, honey and pepper; I’d order the dressing on the side.
Green papaya, peanuts and spicy dressing; this is one of my FAVORITE foods!
Rice noodles, bean sprouts, tofu and peanuts; the noodles are iffy, but I’m okay with it.
Eggplant with Garlic Sauce
Eggplant, sautéed in tangy garlic sauce, served on bean sprout greens; the sautéing is dicey, this wouldn’t be my first choice.
Wild Yam Delight
Wild yams sautéed with baby corn and snow peas; same problem with the sautéing.
Lotus Root Delux
Sliced lotus root, bamboo shoots, snow peas, carrots and brown sauce; I’d ask about the sauce before ordering.
I don’t have any SERIOUS gripes with Bay Leaf. They do cook with A LOT of tofu and I prefer nutrient-dense veggies over bean curd, but it’s still pretty cool. Overall, the Papaya Salad and Bay Leaf Salad are my two favorites.
