Respond to Review of Aux Vivres
Review: I was recently in Montreal for a conference. I went to Aux Vivres 3 times during my stay. The first time I had the famed BLT wrap. DELICIOUS! Although the chapati wraps are quite big and half of a wrap with a salad would have been better, they should add that option to their sandwich menu. The second time I went for brunch (served on Sat. & Sun.) and had le complet which has scrambled tofu, tempeh bacon, salad, fruit, sweet potato, and cornbread - SO GOOD! The scrambled tofu was by far the best I've had. This meal is also a good deal as it was under $10 and came with coffee or chai. The third time I had the famous tofu dragon bowl which was once again amazing. It is crammed with delicious veggies and the dragon sauce is teriffic. The desserts I found to be so-so. The carrot cake is really good, as was the ginger cookie and date square. The uncheesecake had a weird consistency, tasted like plain silken tofu, and had a weird jello-like substance on the top. The chocolate apple cake was a bit dry, but it had a delicious ganache frosting. The restaurant is quite spacious and has a beautiful terrace - I strongly suggest eating outside if you go during decent weather. Oh, and the dinner menu is a bit different from the lunch menu. There are a few more options. I would certainly go back to Aux Vivres if I ever find myself in Montreal.
