I've previously expressed my fondness for Nhut Quang, the vegan Vietnamese restaurant on NE 82nd and NE Fremont. I went again twice in the past week with friends, and would like to declare my "new favorite dish" award to #19, the BBQ Roasted Gluten.
There is also Van Hanh on SE 82nd and Division, which is simpler and faster for me to get to from my residence, but I would certainly consider tasty vegan Vietnamese food destination dining and I prefer the actual food at Nhut Quang and the experience of making a point to go there.
As a vegan establishment that I thoroughly enjoy, I make a point to support them. I had reason to worry about their future, hence the recent visits. If you are also a fan or haven't been yet - please check them out. The economy blows and independent restaurants are being affected. Support your veg*n friendly favorites!
Here's a look at what my friends and I shared for dinner last night:
BBQ Roasted Gluten
Vietnamese Crepe greens station - lettuce, mint and basil
Green Beans and Gluten
A look inside.
Sushi Rolls with lovely peanut sauce
And salad rolls
And elsewhere in vegan-friendly Vietnamese friendly dining, here's my recent pho take out from Huong's Vietnamese cart downtown. Read the Stumptown Vegans review here.
