Nhut Quang - Recent Vietnamese Food Adventures in Portland


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 Crepes 

Vietnamese Crepe greens station - lettuce, mint and basil

Green Beans and Gluten

Steamed Bun

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.

Ample leftovers, fo sho.

I love Nhut Quang. The owners are always super nice and remember me when I go in. It's quite a hike out to their location but I really like supporting them.

Jealous of your fine vietnamese eateries!

Gina said...

That looks so fantastic, I am super jealous...I want some!

I especially loved the steamed bun, that looks so cool :)

I would drive hours for food like that. Just for the gluten, the rest would be bonus foods!

Mihl said...

This is a great (& very timely) post!

My bf & I are hoping to return to Portland in a few weeks, so I'll definitely have to check some of this food out, first-hand!

Thanks for the great ideas :)

OMG! That food looks just amazing. I wish I had a nice vegan resturaunt to go to. But I'm in the south and there aren't many options for me. If I'm ever in Portland, I'll definately eat at this place.
