Like a Vietnamese Chipotle!

Posted on 07 / 18 / 2015

This place is like a Vietnamese chipotle. Choose your meal (bowl, salad, sandwich, tacos), choose your protein, then choose your veggies and toppings! Very vegan-friendly and everything tastes great!

Pros: Great tofu, Lots of options, Interesting sodas and drinks
Cons: No vegan desserts

i ate here for the first time today- and im glad i tried it! i got a noodle bowl with the sweet sauce and tofu. once i got tofu the employee immediately asked me if i was vegan, and let me know which sauce i couldnt have due to fish oil.
the food is awesome, the only things i didnt like were the contrast of the cold carrots with the warm tofu and the tough greenbeans. but those are just personal trifles. the soda was so delicious!
ill definitely be back to try their other choices.

Pros: vegan friendly, create your own, well put together tastes

This is a place that is similar to Chipotle's set-up. They have bahn-mi sandwiches, tacos, bowls, and salads - all Asian themed. I had a bowl, with the tofu and curry sauce. The menu indicates which choices are vegan (also online). The food is tasty, and customizable. They also have good organic sodas that you can't get anywhere else in Utah (that I know of). Quick, fresh, and tasty.

Pros: Quick tasty food, Great location, Amazing organic sodas
Cons: Busy
