VeganMofo#12: BBT Cafe
Category : Uncategorized
BBT is a cute little Taiwanese cafe/restaurant hidden in the quiet neighborhood of Kerrisdale. I frequent the cafe (especially in the summer) for their refreshing bubble tea with lemon grass jelly (see VeganMofo #6). For years, this was all I would go to the cafe for since the menu contained only one very boring vegetarian dish.
However, since this spring, BBT cafe expanded their menu to include a full page of vegetarian selections! The dishes are mainly veg versions of traditional Taiwanese noodle and rice dishes. I’ve eaten my way through most of the veg menu and I’m very impressed!
When ordering the “meals” (these are the dishes with rice and side dishes) make sure you specify that you don’t eat eggs and do not want any eggs in the side dish (there’s usually usually no eggs in the main dish).
Another thing you want to watch out for is that they will always bring you your beverage in a disposable plastic cup if you don’t ask for a glass. I’ve made that mistake a couple of times.
One of the things I really like about this restaurant is that the waiters always print out a meal ticket and allow you to verify the order before sending it to the kitchen.
