The Westminster/Garden Grove area of Orange County has a large Vietnamese population. Luckily for vegans, there are some restaurants in the area offering delicious vegan Vietnamese food. One such place is Bo De Tinh Tam Chay– a Vietnamese vegetarian restaurant.
As an appetizer, my vegan guy and I got the Fried Won Ton ($6.99). I thought these were good. Not the best won tons I’ve ever had, but good enough to not be disappointed.
One entree was the Combination Fried Rice ($7.99). I really liked this dish, because of its simplicity and flavor. I rarely have fried rice, but was craving it that night. This dish definitely satisfied that craving.
My vegan guy got the Vermicelli with Shredded Tofu and Eggless Roll ($7.49). From what I remember, he liked it all right, but has had better.
And we also got their Sauteed Mushroom with Ginger and Basil ($8.99). This is basically just fried oyster mushrooms with a red sauce. I didn’t think it was that flavorful. Most of the flavor came from the sauce. Plus, the mushrooms weren’t that crispy.
Even though what we ordered this particular night wasn’t the best, I have been here before and have had some wonderful dishes. Of course their Pho is great and I’m sure many other dishes are, too. Also, beware – they charge $0.50 for a glass of water (that’s tap water, not bottled).
It’s in a shopping complex with lots of parking.
