I like vegetarian food but am a bit wary of vegan as it seems so restrictive. And all too often, vegan food seems unhealthy to me as highly processed foods are often used in place of animal products. Well, at Mary's Secret Garden, vegan = healthful bliss.
The berry smoothie was delicious and I loved that coconut milk was the base and not soy milk. Then I enjoyed the finest broccoli tofu pad thai -- it was out of this world. Tons of fresh veggies that lightly steamed in the noodles and spicy sauce. Yum. And did I mention the noodles are gluten-free???
Mary is a magician and I believe this will be my second home on every visit to Ventura.
