Mharie and I have been challenged by the idea of getting to the Workshop Vegetarian in North Vancouver for a long time. It is not that it is so far away from us or too hard to find but the fact that they are only ever open Monday to Friday from 10-4 and then close on statutory holidays. My wife and I both work Monday to Friday so getting to this destination has been nearly impossible. However, thanks to my recent knee replacement surgery, I have been off work for 4 weeks and finally gathered enough mobility that I decided to make the pilgrimage to WV during the week.
Located at 3rd and Pemberton, WV is in reality a vegan restaurant and I'm not even sure why they call themselves Vegetarian. They have a very good selection of baked goods, soups, noodles and more, not to mention items ready for takeout and frozen items as well. WV was started with the idea of making Asian foods available without animal products (and healthier).
