Walking up to R. Thomas, you may wonder why we’d recommend a place where they’ll likely be filming the next episode of Hoarders. Looking past the birdcages, multi-colored pinwheels, flags, and lawn art, though, you’ll find a restaurant that’s been serving vegan foods like tofu scrambles and kelp noodles since 1985 (though, worth noting, this place isn’t exclusively vegan). And since they’re open 24/7, that means they’ve had a lot of practice serving seaweed and soy products.
