I can’t even start explaining how long it took to convinced my boyfriend we needed to try this place. I actually had to take some convincing myself, vietamese food without MEAT?!?!? How does that even work?
Fresh rolls, steamed lemongrass tofu, green leaf lettuce, cucumber, quinoa, crispy wheat center rice paper. Oh my god. I am blown away in vegan heaven.

Seasonal vegetables, peanut sate sauce, greens, sunflower, seasame seeds, kale, rice. The FIRST TIME EVER my boyfriend had a dish without meat and he LOOOOOVED IT! I shit you not. The bowl was full of flavours & healthy!

And of course, I just couldn’t believe myself. A vietnamese restaurant without meat? What the heck does the broth taste like? I wasn’t hungry but I am intrigued so I ordered a side bowl of broth and adsajklsdakas I am.. whats a new word for blown away? I been saying that a lot here. I don’t know, just blown away.
