More Items at Wheel of Life
While most restaurants struggle, Irvine's champion of veganism Wheel of Life has expanded its menu, at least since the last time I visited months ago. I didn't try any of those dishes, however, craving as I was some tom yah soup (with giant ginger slices no amount of gnawing on my behalf could whittle down) and a fried mint spicy rice that fulfilled the promises of its name. You can see the new items here; the funniest entree, of course, is the Golden Papi wrap--a misstranslation, I'm sure, by this wab like the Filipino bakery treat puto.
