It's rare that vegetarians or vegans can eat at Buford Highway restaurants, especially at Vietnamese places. But I just learned that Lee's Bakery accommodates us veggie folks, thanks to this vegan blog that raved about the vegan pho (noodle soup), banh mi (sandwiches made with tofu, daikon radish, cucumber, soy sauce on French bread), and spring rolls. It does come with mayo, so to veganize it, just ask for the mayo to be left off).
"The best sandwich I have ever had in my life. I may be exaggerating a little bit. Actually, I am not this Banh Mi was the best darn thing I have ever had, crunchy on the outside soft in the inside. The texture of the tofu was great, fried and lightly salted. I can’t even describe to you how it tastes. It is one of those thing where you “have to see it to believe it” kind of deal, hehe. The Pho was just WOW! It was amazing, filled with fresh vegetables in abundance. The soup was filled with carrots, green onions, cabbage, and lettuce with vermicelli noodles on the bottom topped with tofu with a side of bean sprouts, mint and a slice of lime.
The spring rolls were as equally good. They are wrapped in a rice paper with a cabbage filling; vermicelli noodles, green onions and tofu served with a peanut sauce and crushed peanuts."
The meal should be about $10 or even less. PLEASE bring cash; the
restaurant doesn't accept charge/debit cards for under $10.
They can only accommodate 20, so please only RSVP if you are definitely going to come. I'll e inviting some people from other veggie groups as well.
After our meal, we can continue on to a Korean coffee/tea place or have a shopping tour at the Buford Highway Farmer's Market.
