There are a handful of restaurants in Seattle that I keep in my dining rotation. Ba Bar, located in Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood, is one of them. It’s not solely vegan nor is it very vegan friendly. There are a several vegetarian options notated on the menu and one of them happens to also be vegan – I know because I asked the staff.
Have you ever had a Vietnamese vermicelli bowl or bun cha? Pho seems to be the most popular Vietnamese dish but I think bun is where it’s at. I believe bun is traditionally served with pork and herbs over noodles and a side of broth or dipping sauce.
Ba Bar has a vegan version on their menu that I highly recommend. It’s topped with tofu, spinach tofu wraps, shiitake mushrooms, and greens. I like to pour my sauce onto the bun and mix everything together. They also have a stellar happy hour menu; this dish goes down nicely with a Moscow mule that comes served in a copper mug.
If you give this restaurant a shot or know of any amazing vegan options in the Seattle area that I should try, let me know by leaving a comment.
