Amaaaazing vegan Vietnamese restaurant in Vancouver - chau veggie express! I got the vegan pho made with a star anise/cinnamon/cardamom broth, filled with assorted organic tofu, bean curd, mushrooms, lotus root, herbs, flat rice noodles, bean sprouts, and mint leaves! Also got the strawberry lychee coconut smoothie and some fresh salad rolls with peanut sauce. Their entire menu is so damn good we had such a hard time trying to pick just one!
