Best Vegetarian Dish

Tempeh Phat Thai at Martin Brothers Cafe

It's filling, it's flavorful, and it's far from the uninspired mess we're tired of picking away at half-heartedly. In this dish, tempeh takes to the tastes of Thailand like a fish does to water. We pair it with a smoothie and walk away from this Austin Institution -- Martin Bros. was the original deli inside the first Whole Foods Market -- feeling fat and happy.
