No. 64: Crispy Orange Beef from Pine Garden

Few vegetarian dishes are as satisfying as the ones made at Chinese restaurant Pine Garden in Boca Raton. That's because the faux meats made in-house are hearty, flavorful, and wholesome. The restaurant has a regular and an extensive vegetarian menu, with dishes like seitan "pork" in black bean sauce and chicken with broccoli. One of the most texturally satisfying plates is the crispy orange beef. Fat strips of seitan are coated in yam flour and fried until crackly and delicious, then draped with a sweet and floral orange sweet and sour sauce. The rare combination of texture and flavor makes for an enticing meal for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
