Café Zen has got to be one of the most vegetarian-friendly restaurants in Baltimore. C'mon, they've got tofu eight different ways here. And most of their myriad Chinese dishes, from sha cha to moo shu to kung pao, are available in vegetarian versions. It's great to see a restaurant taking seriously the great Chinese tradition of vegetable dishes, serving terrific garlic spinach and string beans rolled in scallion pancakes in place of the generic-veggies-in-gloppy-sauce most places try to get away with. Everything here is cooked crisp-tender with light, flavorful sauces, demonstrating a knowledgeable kitchen staff who cares about the food they create.
