Vietnamese restaurant with great vegan menu in Crows Nest.
I experienced an amazing surprise at the Vietnamese restaurant “I love Pho” in Crows nest.
My husband and I were out in the bushes walking, in the Northern area. When suddenly it started raining, because of which I got wet. This made us miserable and we were already so hungry, and it was a funny time- 3pm .
We decided to stop at Crows Nest, an area with a lot of restaurants, but as it was only 3 pm, the only eating options were burger shops, chicken takeaways or pubs.
I was desperately craving for Asian food, especially some warm soup noodle, but no open Asian restaurants had anything healthy or vegan. I was about to eat a vegan burger.
Then…. I spotted a Vietnamese restaurant which was OPEN! My hubby looked disappointed as he loved burgers; gosh, I was so happy. After a lot of convincing he agreed to take a table at I Love Pho, I thank god for that.
I was so excited after reading the menu, because it had Asian, vegan and soup noodles, which was everything I wanted.
Heavenly vegan mixed entrée @ $23.9
We started off with a platter of their top 3 entrées: 2 pieces of tofu fresh rice paper rolls, 2 pieces of Taro crispy spring rolls, and 2 pieces of steam bao buns with crispy tempura eggplant.
Unlike me, my husband ordered salt and pepper calamari, as he is always opting for a fried dish and meat. Even though we were ordering vegan.
After we were done with our delicious entrees, we ordered the mains. The noodle soup I had been craving for long.
Vegetable lover’s noodle soup @$17.9
A 100% vegan pho with tofu and mixed vegetable in noodle soup. It looked good but tasted even better.
We were so hungry that we were able to finish 2 entrées and 2 mains!
By the way,
They also offer a vegan tasting menu @$59 for 2 or more
- Fresh rice paper rolls (Tofu and Mint),
- Crispy spring rolls (Taro and Mung Bean),
- Steam bao buns (Tempura Eggplant),
- San Choi bao,
- Vietnamese pancakes,
- Vegetable hotpot,
- Vegetable tofu curry,
- Green morning glory and rich.
I think it is quite an interesting menu. We could not order that course because my hubby was so determined to have naughty foods, but I would love to try the vegan tasting menu when my hubby is not starving
I am so happy that it is getting so much easier to have exiting vegan options (NOT BORING ONE) in a non-plant based restaurant! So happy!
