Excellent vegan food
Posted on 05 / 03 / 2012
Visited the place several times with my wife and mother-in-law. They're both Vietnamese and have been vegan for about 20 years, so it was a big surprise to find a dish they hadn't tried.
As someone already said, they have a draft of an English menu now, hopefully our fixes make it to that also. Note for vegans -- the menu mentions butter on one dish, so we asked the staff: they don't use butter but the place and owners are pure vegan as it says on the window. They even use the expensive definitely pure vegetable oils, not the cheap ones from the market which according to local rumours can sometimes be mixed with animal fats to reduce the price.
Would recommend their beefy dish -- I forget what it was called now, but something related to beef and costing more than any other dishes except for hot pot. There's quite a lot to eat so it doesn't end up expensive. How to eat:
1) put 1-2 of the beefy bits to soak in the sauce that's on the fire
2) wet one sheet of rice paper in the water bowl
3) put some of the vegetables, noodles, and the soaked beefy bits on the rice paper
4) roll the rice paper up and eat -- if you like it spicy, dip in the red sauce they also bring.
great food, pure vegan, reasonably priced
little/no English spoken
