Good Vegetarian Restaurants

By Stett Holbrook


THE PRODUCTION of meat, especially beef, is a significant source of global warming. Methane gas, a.k.a. cow flatulence, is 23 times more potent than CO2. Producing grain and corn to feed animals is also carbon-intensive. How about skipping meat a few nights a week? Here are five vegetarian restaurants to get you started. 


Dasaprakash 2636 Homestead Rd, Santa Clara. 408.246.8292.


Good Karma Vegan Cafe 37 S. First St, San Jose. 408.294.2694.


International Vegetarian House  520 E. Santa Clara St, San Jose. 408.292.3798.


Tofoo Com Chay  388 E. Santa Clara St, San Jose. 408.286.6335.
