Selection is better at King's Cafe

More than half of the mock meats have whey powder and/or eggs in them. We ordered three or four large bags of vegan-friendly analogues, faux shrimp and faux Vietmanese-style shredded pork in a dark brown sweet sauce among them. The former was made with konnyaku (giving it that rubbery consistency), and was quite bland (but would work in a flavourful stir-fry). The latter worked very well when fried with scallions and fresh lemon juice.
Very reasonable, but the selection is better at King's Cafe in Kensington Market.
Although the store front is just a small room in a factory, the woman who helped us let us try a hot vegan pancake which she brought in from the back. Very nice.
reasonable bulk prices, friendly
