Climate control

China Villa

Last weekend we tried staying indoors because of the heat -- back to back movies. This weekend I have Collette, my great-niece staying and playing on a summer holiday, and we're trying to stay indoors because of this unhealthy air from the forest fires. Between movies last weekend, Dad & I tried the vegetarian family meal at China Villa in San Rafael's Northgate Mall.

Tofu Soup

It started with a tofu and vegetable soup, that had a nice medley of flavors.

Vegetable Spring Rolls

Next came the appetizers, vegetable spring rolls and fried won ton skins. We enjoyed crumbling up the won ton skins into the soup.

Vegetarian Fried Rice

Then the entrees arrived all at once. First, the Vegetarian Fried Rice.

Vegetarian Stir Fried String Beans

Then the not too spicy, but delicious Stir Fried Green Beans.

Vegetables in Garlic Sauce

And the Vegetables in Garlic Sauce was really great too. We enjoyed our meal and the friendly service, and were quite happy with the number and variety of vegetarian choices we saw on the regular menu as well.
