Terrible Pie and Excellent Tofu
I had an annoying morning at work yesterday and also was so hungry I ate my packed lunch (soup and crackers) at 10 AM. I figured this all justified a trip to the Green Door vegetarian buffet which happened to be on my way to my next appointment.
This restaurant has been around forever and people in Ottawa have mixed feelings about it. It's kind of hippie-ish and the food on offer is pretty much the same all the time, but I still like it. On my plate you see their classic tofu broccoli stirfry, which is always delicious, a newer noodle dish, some big beets, avocado salad, and kale salad. And what's that in the background? Why it's the worst vegan pumpkin pie I've ever eaten! Sorry Green Door bakers, but that pie was flavourless and the crust was hard as a rock. The rest of my food was good, though.
