Time to step up. - Edit

Bon Bon is good for a quick sandwich in the neighborhood.
The have vegan drumstick, but as of the last time I heard the still use the same fryer as the meat products.
I order the vegan ramen once, but I think they may have mixed it up with a meaty one, because it didn't look like it had anything the menu said it had and it looked like the picture of a different ramen.

Pros: Quick Sandwich, Easy going atmosphere, Near the neighborhood, and six corners

Cons: Everything fried in same oil as meat, When busy, staff gets hectic

Vegan Vagabond 11 Dec 2013 - That's disappointing about the fryers. Very disappointing. Did they tell you this?

IantheVedge 11 Dec 2013 - Yes, myself and a series of friends have checking on a regular basis.

IantheVedge 11 Dec 2013 - Haven't been in over a month though, be sure to ask!

Tasty! - Edit

This is a very vegan friendly "Japanese, Asian street food, Korean, Vietnamese" restaurant. They have a large menu with a large number of vegan items clearly marked. Everything from Korean vegan wings (yummy) Vietnamese spring rolls, to vegan pho, vegan ramen, bento boxes, and bahn mi sandwiches. The prices are very reasonable and everything seems to be made fresh. They deliver locally.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Tasty food, Good prices

Cons: Not 100% vegan

Five Cows - Edit

This banh mi shop has such excellent vegan lemongrass tofu sandwiches that I crave them and stop in a few times a month. Great sandwich/chips/soda special, soda and boba selection, they add new thingsto their menu CONSTANTLY. They also play good music, have a rotating art selection, and games to play/books to read while you wait for your food. They're really nice folks and put out fresh, delicious food (every time I've been there). Heads up, it's cash only.

Pros: Delicious, Fresh, Cheap

Cons: Cash Only

Not so great - Edit

I was so excited to see a place that offers vegan Vietnamese soup (Pho), but was sooooo disappointed when I had it at Bon Bon. Terrible. Nothing like real Pho and not even good for being soup period. Sad. The sandwich we had wasn't very good either. Two strikes out....

Pros: Cheap, Vegan options

Cons: Not very tasty

Vegan Vietnamese Sandwiches - Edit

Bon Bon Vietnamese Sandwiches is a cute little sandwich shop with a coffee shop type of feel. They have many vegan options (soups, sandwiches, etc.) to choose from as well. I ordered the vegan lemongrass tofu sandwich and thought it was so so - I probably wouldn't order it again. The sandwich had a combination of hot (peppers) and sweet, although the overall sweetness ruined the sandwich for me. On the plus side the tofu was really good, the bread was good, they offered vegan mayo, and the meal was pretty cheap overall. Next time I'll go with the vegan classic, which is apparently their #1 bestseller among vegans. 3-3.5 cows
