Ou For U Dairy Vegetarian Cafe

Category: A nice stop in the Perimeter Mall area.
Summary: Tasty and healthy vegetarian food.

Please don't ask me what the name of this restaurant means---I have no idea. But I am glad I stopped by. I was in the Perimeter Mall area and needed a fast lunch; I was in the mood for something moderately healthy. When I saw a sign on Peachtree Dunwoody Road for a vegetarian restaurant, I decided to give it a try.

I thorougly enjoyed my lunch.  I had a lentil soup and the falafel platter. The lentil soup was fine; the falafel platter really got my attention. The bread was pillowy and warm, obviously fresh. The falafel was pretty good. The vegetable medley that served as a bed was very bright and fresh tasting, a perfect accompaniament. The hummus came with an oil dressing and was another good complement. As you can see, they also get Brownie points for food styling.

  1. In case you're still wondering, OU stands for (Jewish) Orthodox Union - the most common symbol for Kosher food, something like in this logo:

    You can see that the logo is an U inside an O - hence OU, and OU-For-U - "kosher for you" :-)

  2. We had dinner here this evening. It was wonderful. Everything we ordered was fresh and served promptly. The hummus and felafel were perfect and, as stated above, the pita bread was unusually light and almost fluffy. The salad was good. I frequent two other Mediterranean restaurants in my neighborhood and now this is my favorite. I will be a regular here.
