Hours: Mon - Fri 11:30 am to 8 pm; Sat and Sun 11 to 7. My family ate here twice during a recent trip to Halifax. The restaurant is located across from the Public Gardens, just up the road from the Citadel. There are a few seats indoors, and a couple of tables and chairs outside. The restaurant specializes in Vietnamese sandwiches made on fresh French bread and include a variety of vegetable toppings, including shredded carrots, daikon and hot peppers. We sampled both of the vegetarian sandwiches--the Buddha and the Veggie Meatball. The Buddha contains grilled marinated tofu and it was quite tasty. The standard sauce is mayo-based and does contain eggs, but there are other sauce options available. The veggie meatball sandwich contains homemade vegan tvp meatballs. These are very small meatballs that are marinated and not covered in tomato sauce. My children enjoyed the meatballs immensely and picked them out of the sandwich, leaving the delicious bread behind.
The small restaurant also has a selection of fruit-smoothie based bubble teas.Pros: tasty sandwiches, quick, in an area without a lot of options
Cons: only two sandwiches
