Best Local Vegetarian

Shangri-La Tea Room and Cafe

Readers' Picks

There aren't a lot of restaurants in Boise one can walk into and order a "DLT" sandwich (the "D" stands for dulse, by the way--a dried red algae akin to lettuce) with cold Thai coconut soup on the side and a cup of "Mocha Surprise," which is an alternative to coffee made with chicory, re is hi, mushroom and licorice, and served in a French press. OK, actually, there's really only one restaurant where one could order such a spread, and that's the Shangri-La Tea Room and Cafe. Nestled on the Bench on Overland Road, it's a little out of the way, but ask any die-hard vegetarian and they'll tell you it's the hottest spot for herbivores. Time to satisfy your curiosity--and maybe make some dietary changes. shangri-latearoomandcafe.com
