Veggiebowl

I wanted BBH for lunch but the lineup was ridiculous at Cafe Xu Hue. We ventured two doors down to Veggiebowl where there was plenty of room. They coin themselves as specializing in Vietnamese vegetarian food.

We dropped in on a Sunday for a late lunch (around 1:00pm). There’s 8 tables (3 booths) and room for about 32 people. Service is standard (the front is run by the kids). At least our teas were refilled several times.

Menu is short and sweet with only 15 items; appetizers, rice & noodles and beverages.

They had a few desserts (only available on the weekends) on the counter and in the fridge (like che).

Their specials, especially the baby dill vermicelli, sounded good.

Got to love the ghetto signs for wifi and payment.

Never seen this offered before so had to try it.

The tapioca glass noodles were enjoyable. Broth was clean, slightly peppery. Fried vegan ham cube was a solid meat replacement.

Good variety of vegetables; seems like they change it up depending on availability.

Hu tieu satay (B7) ($10.50)
DSC03674Flat rice noodles, peanut satay sauce, shallots, fried tofu, beansprouts, mushrooms, cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, basil and roasted peanuts. Didn’t realize this was a dry noodle dish when we ordered it. Sauce had some good heat to it but it was thin, almost too watery. Decent but nothing spectacular.

Decent vegetarian food but nothing I’m craving.
