Dao Palate is near the Park Slope section of Brooklyn. They describe their food as Pan=Asian vegan cuisine and offer almost all the familiar Chinese and Thai takeout meals like General Tso’s and Pad Thai, just made the vegan way. You’ll find an assortment of drinks made by hand such as their wild ginger ale, Thai iced tea, and their virgin mojito. And you’ll fall in love with their Zen décor. Tall stalks of bamboo line the walls while beautiful Asian ornaments adorn the ceiling. They serve your food on chic square china decorated with nonedible flowers. If you want to beat the crowds, it’s best to visit this restaurant before 5 p.m. during the weekdays and 7 p.m. on weekends.
