Kung Food


While in San Diego last week I took the advice of many people and stopped by KUNG FOOD. First off, I am thrilled by the idea of drive thru veggie food. I know the drive thru isn't the healthliest of meals but, honestly, sometimes I just CRAVE it :)

We arrived early morning for their vegan Sunday brunch. At Kung Food there is a cafeteria-like set up. You'll walk in tell the server your choices and they'll spoon it on a plate for you. They charge by the weight of the items you've chosen.

Our choices:



Pancakes


Quiche and sausage



Tofu scramble and new potatoes


The food was great but pretty pricey. It was about 20 bucks for our meal- an amount I'm certainly not used to paying for breakfast. I enjoyed the outing but will probably opt for the less pricey drive through meal next time.


I had to have a picture of this sign!

Kung Food is a wonderful vegan experience and worth stopping by, just be ready for a larger-than-normal bill.

The food looks delicious - sometimes a pricy treat is worth it. I hope you had a great time in San Diego!

I don't know when I'll make it to San Diego, but I'd love to check out that restaurant. They reviewed it in VegNews a while back & Kleo had posted about it on her blog. What were the lunch & dinner prices like? Sometimes I find restaurants can get a little crazy with their breakfast pricing. I've had $1.99 and also $20.

Sounds great, though I agree with you on the price. I thought about checking this place out the last time I was in SD but I didn't make it. Definitely next time...

Candi said...

ooh, it looks great! I'd never make all that for just me and Britty, so once in awhile it'd be worth the price for us. The tofu scramble looks great!!

I've been to Kung Food and I really liked it! I went for lunch and although the food was good, it was a little too salty for me and I also agree it is pricey! But it's nice to see that there is a vegan drive thru! Anyways, next time I go to San Diego I will definitely go back!
