BrEAThe Kitchen works out of the Coho Commissary on Powell Street. Living out in the Valley means we have to plan carefully ahead of time (the order has to be in 3 days ahead) and then not suddenly have a change of plans. There are a couple more vegan commissary kitchen places that we would like to try but they do not offer weekend pickups so we are left out completely. BrEAThe does have Saturday and Sunday pick-up times but they also offer local delivery. You would have to consult their schedule for that.
BrEAThe Kitchen - Vegan Pies
Axum Ethiopean Restaurant - Vegan Options
Viet Family - The Vegan House
I used to feel like deciding to go vegan would mean making some sacrifices (I don't anymore) but those sacrifices would never include missing out on Vietnamese food. In fact, our list of favourite vegan places, so far, includes at least five Vietnamese restaurants and you can add Viet Family - The Vegan House as number six.
Blaze Gourmet Burgers - Le Burger Week - Vegan Options
So this year Le Burger Week was actually deux weeks, and we were able to get out and check out a second participating place. As I mentioned (or maybe not) a lot of the alleged plant-based burgers were actually not plant-based beyond the patty. Not sure if everyone actually had a firm grasp on the whole point of "plant-based burger". Anyway, since we had limited opportunities, we chose to give the old reliables a miss this time. We know we will always be able to get meatless food at Chickpea or Meet so instead we decided to check out Blaze Gourmet Burgers on E 5th.
Recovery Day 2022 - 10th Anniversary
Recovery Day is an event that takes place at 6th and 6th in New Westminster every year to celebrate the fact that recovery is possible for addiction and mental illness. Represented among the sponsors and people that put the event together are some of the many recovery groups and treatment systems that are available for all kinds of these difficulties and diseases. I'm not familiar with the whole history of Recovery Day, but September 10th, 2022 was the 10th anniversary. We attended back in 2018 but not during the pandemic and whether it took place or not during that time, I'm not sure.
Afuri Ramen + dumpling - Vegan Options
I think that we were made aware of the vegan options at Afuri Ramen + Dumplings by our new favourite local YouTubers, Vegan Twosome. Diana and Amir are a totally cute couple who have been vegan for at least 20 years as near as we can tell, and we may just follow around in the wake of their reviews to find our next plant-based meal. As far as Afuri is concerned, I think they went to the Richmond location while we checked out the new place on Main Street at 12th.
Kirin Seafood Restaurant - Vegan Menu!
Cavu Kitchen Bar - Le Burger Week - Vegan Edition!
I was very excited to read that Le Burger Week was coming and that, "This year, we encouraged restaurants to create plant-based burgers." So just as I was moaning about not being able to participate in foodie events (please see my previous post), Sysco (what happened to Saputo?) came to my rescue! However, I realized almost immediately that many restaurants don't really understand what is meant by a plant-based burger. To me and probably most people who choose to follow plant-based diets, a plant-based burger means that there are no animal products on the plate and it's not just about an Impossible patty with bacon and dairy cheese. Still, it's a step in the right direction that many folks are making the effort and I just did my research!
