A little gem that is easy to miss sandwiched between two shopping plazas, this place serves plenty of customers especially during the lunch hour. The front counter has combo specials available for take out, veggies and an assortment of mock meats, or you can grab a seat where the owner David will likely drop by to say hello and check in on you to see if everything is to your liking :) Super friendly, we sat down with him as the crowd died down a bit and he took a breather to chat with us about how he ended up buying the place as the original Bo De Tinh Tam Chay outgrew the location.
I'm always on the lookout for a good veggie soup, and I was very pleased with my order. My carnivorous date also enjoyed his meal, which is always a plus. We both ate everything in front of us, including a sample that David had brought us to try. No doubt everything there is just as well made and tasty as what we had, but the real gem is the effort they are making to have an asian establishment that not only treats its customers well, but also its staff. It's typical for an asian place to have delicious food but horrible service and miserable workers, but since David is trying to reverse all this, the food is all the better.
