Long Life Vegi House 1725 University Ave./McGee Ave., (510) 845-6072. L-D W-M; $.
This inexpensive Chinese restaurant moved recently from its location close to the campus to a farther away but spacious new spot with big windows to the street. It features many dishes with mock meats but also has a lengthy menu of real seafood dishes. Portions are huge, and zucchini is a favorite filler--and good for you. Vegetarian items include vegi-pork and vegi-chicken with spicy garlic sauce, sweet-and-sour fried tofu, steamed taro buns, scallion pancakes, and orange chicken. My personal favorites are sweet-and-sour pork, and eggplant and tofu with spicy garlic sauce. The bargain $6.99 lunch special includes a bowl of hot and sour soup, a spring roll, and brown rice. Ask for the good chili sauce, which they keep in the back.
