Ojas Blend - Vegan Options

Bowls seem to be something you can count on to be vegan or vegan-friendly. I kind of think of them as boring and have complained in the past but the truth is that a good vegan bowl can be tasty and satisfying! So there will be no more denigrating of bowls on this blog!
Ojas Blend is located on 152nd just south of 16th Ave. in White Rock. They do mainly bowls, wraps and smoothies.
We got a bowl and a wrap to go. We also ordered the Strawberry Zen Smoothie and enjoyed it on the way home. It was a mix of strawberry, peach and zucchini and I'm not sure what else. It didn't hold up like the smoothie from The Yoga Chef (melted quickly into juice) but it was still impressive.
We ordered the only vegan bowl on the menu called Holy Tofu Curl, which features stewed soya curls. Many other bowls can be modified to be vegan but in most cases it seems like a major component is not vegan and there is no replacement that is equivalent. It was a tasty bowl with lots of varied flavours and textures and the tofu curls were quite good. We were drawn to the place partly because there is a Soya Chap (or Soya Chop) bowl on the website menu but that seems to have been replaced by the curls (more familiar?)
For a little variation, we ordered our next bowl as a wrap! It had a lot of the same ingredients (I think there was only one sauce that is vegan) but it was very good all tortillaed up and grilled.
There are four tables and a window bar and this is not an unpleasant place to eat. The choices for vegans seem pretty limited but it is certainly better than fries and a salad like you find at lots of places. We found the staff to be friendly and mostly informed (if a little distracted) and the prices are pretty standard.
