Restaurant Review - The Green Elephant in Portland, Maine

My Daughter Jenn & I went to check out this new Vegetarian Bistro in Portland last night. All I can say is WOW!!! So delicious.
The atmosphere is very relaxing, clean and friendly. The menu is Asian-influenced cuisine.
We wanted to try everything but this is what we decided on:
Appetizers - Soy nuggets w/ sauce
Deep Fried Vegetarian Spring Rolls
stuffed w/ vegetable and shitake mushroom

Entrees - Tofu & Vegetable Teriyaki
broccoli, zuccini, carrots, mushrooms, and sweet corn in Teriyaki sauce
Served w/ mashed buttercup squash and brown rice.

Special for that day - bean noodles w/lots of veggies in a spicy sauce

Dessert - OF COURSE
Chocolate Orange Mousse Pie
Tofu Cheesecake

Everything we tried was absolutely delicious!!! They even have a raw food item on the menu - Green Leaves Wrap w/ Mango & Herbs
raw vegetables wrapped in green collard leaves w/ tamarind dipping sauce
They had several wheat free options and almost everything is completely VEGAN. If the item you want has egg you just ask for it without and they are great with preparing the food the way you want it. Another plus?! NO MICROWAVED FOOD :)

So, if you are in the Portland, Maine area do give the Green Elephant a try. You won't be sorry.

This is our absolute favorite restaurant in Maine ! Everything they serve truly is delicious, the "soy nuggets" appetizer is incredible.
