Just off the main pier you’ll find this local vegetarian treasure trove. Focusing on fresh ingredients and high quality cuisine – at the right price – Dow’s menu is extensive, offering hard-to-find vegan curries totally free of pesky add-ins like fish sauce that all too often limit a vegetarian’s available fare. They’ve also got more than a few excellent meat-eater options, and Western veggie snacks available like hummus, deep-fried cauliflower, and falafel.
