Mi Lah Vegetarian

An adorable little spot with big flavor. Mi Lah has an eclectic pan-Asian menu with a sprinkle of North and South American. We didn't know what to order, so we ordered several dishes. Every single item was different and amazing.

I am newly vegan and my boyfriend is no where near it but we both agreed that this place was awesome. I got the pumpkin pancakes with blueberry butter and a side of sweet potato fries. He got the seitan with Belgium waffles. First of all, the portion sizes are insanely large. I could only finish one pancake! The prices are great based on how much food you get. My non-vegan boyfriend loved the seitan! He said it was very close to chicken and waffles. The atmosphere was cute and not overly crowded. The service was friendly. I can't wait to go back one night for their dinner menu.

Mi Lah is amazing! They don't do the typical "fake meat" vegan fare -- my mom would love them, because they're getting me to eat my vegetables! The African Peanut Stew is incredible, and they give back to Africa, too!

We went for their fixed price Sunday brunch and it is definitely worth the money. We arrived 15 minutes before close (careful -- their web site says they close at 4 on Sundays, but they actually close at 3) and the hostess/owner were extremely friendly and insisted that it was no trouble to seat us so late. The server was also extremely friendly and throughout the meal we never felt rushed. We both got the lumberjack platter and everything but the tofu scramble was amazing. The pumpkin pancakes were fluffy and full of flavor and the tempeh bacon was phenomenal. The potatoes were the best part -- well seasoned and they had some crunchy onions on top. The tofu scramble was a little disappointing. All I could taste was the parsley garnish and the "eggs" were a little mushy for my liking. The meal came with mimosa mix, tea or coffee, and a plate of fresh fruit with scones/coffee cake. I would definitely recommend it to veggies and non-veggies alike. The owners are so friendly and the food is delicious! I can't wait to go back!

I can't get enough of this place. Delicious food and a really nice sized menu. Rather than undistinguishable faux meats, you get varied vegetables and proteins (seitan, tofu, beans, etc.) One server specifically asks if there is something you did not like about your food if you don't finish it (so rare these days). The mango, avocado, spinach salad is to die for. I've also enjoyed the polenta and the autumn vegetable tart. Brunch is outta this world! A vegan omelet - who knew? There are a few items I was not impressed by: the spinach/feta pizza was not good, the labi labi stew seemed undercooked, the seitan skewer lunch portion was too small (but delish), and the apple, ginger, grapefruit cobbler was a bit odd. I'm saddened by the removal of the mango trio from the dessert menu. It was the best dessert I've had there.

I went to lunch at Mi Lah with a friend who couldn't stop raving about it - she's been there several times - and I'm now hooked! I will go back without question and can't wait to try the dinner menu. I had the coconut carrot ginger soup, a standard on the menu, which had a velvet-like texture and delicous layers of flavor. Also had the spicy mango avacado and spinach salad that might possibly be the best spinach based salad I've ever had. For desert we had the chocolate fudge (no sugar) and it was an amazing combination of coco, sweet, salty and hot! While my friend found it a bit too spicy for her taste, I loved it! Our waiter was excellent and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone - vegetarian or not.
