Buddha Delight: "Bring on the carne!" Brookline Restaurant Tip by Aelena23

Brookline Restaurants: 21 reviews and 38 photos

This may be the only Buddha Delight location left. It is fabulous and cheap. If you like Chinese or Vietnamese food and are a vegetarian who sometimes wishes you weren't, everything here will make you happy.

But. If you have access to anything other than your feet/public transport, do go and check out Grasshopper in Allston.

Favorite Dish: The green bean shakes are amazingly good. Everything is delicious, but I am partial to vermicelli with beef. In general, the beef and chicken are a little better than the fish and pork. In my opinion. You should probably try them all. Appetizers are also fun and good.
