CHAU VeggiExpress Vancouver 素食速遞 is a vegetarian eatery serving primarily vegan dishes inspired by Vietnamese roots. They had moved a few times and this time it seems to be here to stay!
Just a few steps away from Western Lake Chinese Restaurant, this hipster joint is becoming one of my favorite vegetarian / vegan restaurants aside from Heirloom. Next door, the CHAU Veggi even has their own cafe serving Parallel 49th coffee.
Namaste Rolls 4.25: fresh salad roll with rice paper, quinoa, mung beans, fried shallots, steamed lemongrass tofu, Thai basil, green leaf lettuce with crispy wheat center, thin rice vermicelli noodles. Served with roasted peanut sauce. I really like the different textures and how fresh everything tasted.
Golden Temple Soup 11.75: I thought I would miss meat in my curry, but I didn’t. This light tumeric coconut curry soup with assorted organic tofu, bean curd, mushrooms, seasonal vegetables, yam, taro, kale and herbs was refreshing. I didn’t get that bloated feeling! Choice of quinoa, wild rice blend or noodles available. In hindsight, I don’t suggest ordering quinoa. It gets lost in the soup and doesn’t soak up the sauce.
Tropical Rainstorm Bowl 10: Coconut heaven with this thick round rice noodle bowl. Complete with shredded beancurd, tofu, yams in toasted soybean and rice powder, spinach, kale, cucumber, mint, mung bean, fried shallots, pickled carrots and daikon, bean sprouts. All tossed in a creamy toasted coconut sauce with lemon vegan fish sauce. Gluten Free. Good for those with Celiac disease or gluten sensitivities.
