Aman Cafe in Oakland's Temescal is an entirely vegetarian and vegan spot specializing in Malaysian roti canai, and you should get here immediately—especially if you’re in need of a vegetable-forward lunch that isn’t an overpriced salad. Flaky, chewy, and perfectly crispy, the roti can be topped with everything from fruit and condensed milk to plant-based sausage with fried eggs. Each roti is super filling, under $15, and is more effective at powering us through the rest of the day than a carton of chocolate-covered coffee beans. Our go-to is the roti comfort: a hearty and saucy mix of tofu, potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, bok choy, and even more veggies.
