614 S Carrollton Ave (at where St. Charles meets Carrollton), New Orleans, Louisiana, USA,

Serves meat, vegan options available. Vietnamese food restaurant. Menu includes vegan salad rolls, veg soups, noodle bowls, and appetizers. Try the tofu avocado bowl (served with vegan peanut sauce), mushroom glass noodle soup, or vegetarian "sweet heat". Note that some dishes that otherwise appear vegetarian may be served with fish sauce on the *side*. You can always ask for hoison or peanut sauce instead. Staff know what soups are made with vegetable broth, and if you tell them you are a vegetarian they will serve you a complementary (vegan) side salad with your meal instead of the usual chicken-based soup. Open Tue-Sun til 9pm.

Noodle Bowls! - Edit

I absolutely LOVE Jazmine! I love the avocado rice noodle bowl and the spring roll noodle bowl! Be sure to request peanut sauce with it or you will get fish sauce. House salad is vegan, but the miso soup is not. Huge portions in the noodle bowls!

Lots of Vegan and Vegetarian choices - Edit

Great little place...good healthy choices for Vegans, Vegetarians, Pescetarians, or meat eaters. Awesome Spring Roll Bar...great noodle choices, hot pots, salads, bubble tea, and a bar. A little more expensive than lead to believe..a cheap meal with a drink is about $12.95. 3 of us had a nice meal, 2 beers, a lemonade = $55.95 before tip. But I agree it was well worth it.

Pros: Great Vegan Choices, Spring Roll Bar + alcohol bar, Sushi grade fish for spring rolls

Cons: Parking on street, Near Loyola Campus

Tasty Vietnamese near Tulane/Loyola - Edit

It has come to my attention that the owners erroneously believe that fish sauce is acceptable in vegetarian diets (but not for vegan diets, oddly enough) such that menu items listed as "vegetarian" e.g. the vegetarian sweet heat noodles, vegetarian po boy, etc. contain fish sauce. The tofu avocado noodle bowl, peanut sauce, mushroom glass noodle soup, vegetarian pho, veggie fresh rolls, and house salad all remain vegan. Please help make it clear to the owners that if a menu item is listed as "vegetarian" it cannot contain fish sauce. And be sure that if you order something listed as "vegetarian" that you specify no fish sauce and they will gladly comply.
Lunch menu is inexpensive while dinner entrees ring in around 10 bucks. The food is tasty, the service is good. They also do bubble teas (dairy)and some specialty teas that don't involve dairy. The owners are knowledgeable about the vegan diet and staff seem happy to direct you to animal free foods. The tofu avocado bowl is addicting.

mwah - Edit

We never eat Vietnamese before so we can not compare this restaurant to other Vietnamic restaurant.
We do eat a lot of Thai en Indian food and we love that!

I ordered a dish with noodles and sweetsoure sauce. It was delicious but only filled with 8 small pieces of vegetables and a lot of noodles! I need more vegetables! (or as we say it in holland: Karig !.. )
And the dish wasn't cheap at all: like 12 dollar and at Escalator Cafe ( at metairie new orleans) you will have a lot more food thats even better!
