I went with Alex today to lunch at Taste of Vietnam across the street from my work. I’d eaten there a few times before and was moderately impressed by their vegetarian offerings. They have 10-15 dishes for vegetarians and the two I had were OK. But today, wow. I had wheat gluten (which doesn’t sound all that appetizing, but really is) covered in a caramel soy sauce and topped with black pepper. It was outstanding.
Alex, who is also vegetarian, had a similar dish, but with curry. He gave his the thumbs up as well.
Each of them went for $6.95. Not bad at all.
