Veggie Venue 8 – Thien Y – 36 Tran Quy Cap ; Binh Thanh District, Ward 11

This new veggie venue is not of my creation.  This is a blog entry taken from Steven McGrath’s blog called “Channel Steve”.  Steve (a.k.a. RockPortrait) is a well-known and respected ex-pat blogger in VietNam.  He was kind enough to let me repost his post on Saigon Vegetarian.  Here is the link to his Blog:

and here is the pasted entry:

I was lucky enough to be invited to eat at the newly opened vegetarian restaurant, Thien Y, in Binh Thanh district. It’s owned by the family of one of the VAS students.

I wasn’t expecting much, being a meat eater, but the food, decor, cleanliness and ambience in this place blew me away. They used mushrooms in place of meat to create dishes like sweet & sour pork, and the difference was almost indistinguishable.

To top it all off, six dishes and two drinks came to a gob-smacking 200,000VND (just under $10). Well worth a taxi ride to this north-eastern district.

Address of Thien Y is:
36 Tran Quy Cap
P.11, Q. Binh Thanh
Tel: 0913 916 036

Photo 1 is a soup that updates and outdoes the ever so popular Sup Cua (crab soup).
Photo 2 is a dish with assorted mushrooms, so tasty with perfectly crispy greens and carrots.
