Bethesda Vegetarian Lunch Recommendations Part 1

A friend and reader of this blog asked for a couple of good lunch recommendations and asked that they be smart/casual and vege friendly.

My suggestions were the following:

Raku Bethesda: Vegetarian Bento Box
Bistro Lazeez: Falafel Sandwich
What do you think about those two?

Lunch Today?

Friends, I am not sure where I want to go for lunch today so I thought I would get some thoughts from all of you. My short list is:
1. Taylors – haven’t been there in a while and always find their stuff fresh and filling

2. Raku – love the spicy noodle soup I had there recently

3. Panas Gourmet - love their empanadas and like the fact that they are constantly providing new and wonderful types to try


So, which one should I go for? Leave a comment or shoot me an email (rajlaw@yahoo.com) with your pick and why!

PS If there is somewhere else that should be considered for a Tuesday lunch, let me know. Cheers!

Which one will you be visiting this week?

Thank you Raku!

Dropped into Raku for sushi on Saturday afternoon around 5pm.  First time in a long time but I got the craving and will definitely be heading back soon!  It was very busy, despite being post-lunch/pre-dinner, and the food was great.  Nice staff, very helpful, professional and friendly.  All in all 45 minutes well spent!
