Tan Lac Vien - Edit

We hit Tan Lac Vien for the first time last night and were very happy to see a standalone vegan section on their menu. The menu has "Temporary Menu" printed on both sides, we aren't sure what that means, hopefully the vegan items stay. We ordered the vegan broken rice and the vegan bun, both came with seitan and teriyaki tofu. The seitan was amazing! It tasted like ham, smoky and loaded with umame. Some of the best seitan we've ever eaten. We were delighted with our food and service and will definitely be back again. Highly recommended!

One thing worth noting for the sake of transparency, and although it didn't bother me it may perhaps bother some, the men's room was dingy and dirty. That's my only complaint. Again, I'm not a prince, I don't eat in the toilet and I wash my hands so it's not a big deal, but some may be turned off. I didn't go in the ladies room but my wife said the ladies room was huge and tidy, so there's that. Conversely, from our seats we were able to see into the kitchen and it is pristine perfection, and that is really what matters!

Big props to Tan Lac Vien for a cool brand new dining experience.
