Mr. Red Cafe Vietnamese Restaurant opened a new Vancouver West Broadway location. Aesthetically it carries from the original 2234 East Hastings pho restaurant – Red walls and minimal decor.
So what’s new at the new Broadway location? Aside from the original menu filled with pho noodles, salad rolls and banh mi, Mr. Red Café now offers other delicacies, entrée dishes and group meals.
- Fermented shrimp paste with deep fried tofu and sliced pork (Bun Cha Ha Noi)
- Hanoi Style Grilled Pork (Bun Dau Mam Tom)
- Mr. Red Café Chef Special (Bun Tron Dac Beit)
- Grilled beef wrap (Bun Bo Xao)
Crispy Fried Pancake Banh Xeo 12.50: The egg pancake was very light and crispy. It comes with vermicelli rice noodles and fresh herbs. Great meal if you are not looking for something too heavy. It is also a great post workout meal other than a super tropical berry smoothie bowl.
Hanoi Turmeric Fish with fresh dill (Cha Ca Ha Noi) 16.50: Served in a sizzling piping small hot pot. The fish is flash fried and coated with spices. Finally I can find this outside of Vietnam. There are generous amounts of fish packed in this small bowl. Be careful of wearing odor-absorbing clothes like this – I walked out smelling like Cha Ca all day!
Mr. Red Cafe is another restaurant we frequent a lot (follow me on Snap 👻 and you will know). If you also ask me “what’s your favorite restaurant in Vancouver is?” you will probably also hear me roll this off my list. I love it for its simplicity, comfort level and flavor profiles. I haven’t yet had a dish I didn’t like or wish I didn’t order.
