There is an argument to be made that vegetarian restaurants are never as good as restaurants that happen to also cater to vegetarians. After all, a chef who loves meat would never serve you a mushroom nut loaf pressed into the shape of a turkey; it would be insulting to the turkey. And so may be the case at Mu Du Noodles, a pan-Asian joint that happily serves beef Jantaboon, chicken pot stickers and rice noodles with pork. But there are also many dishes here that do such honor to their vegetable ingredients that even meat eaters may not realize there’s no chicken in the bowl. Chef Mu Jing Lau seasons her curries and noodle bowls with a deft hand, packs them full of glistening vegetables and offers tofu as an option in nearly every dish. The staunchest vegan and the most militant carnivore will each leave sated.
