I had no idea Vegan food could taste this good.
I've been so hooked ever since Nan and Eahly opened up their first Cafe, just a few stores down from my school in the south. Heart Choices offers an awesome array of different types of vegan/vegetarian styled dishes and mock meats, all made with non-gmo soybeans! Their dishes are well balanced, fresh and has a wicked punch of bold flavours leaving you satisfied and wanting more!
Now let me share some of my favourite dishes that I've had for the past 5 months from Thai Vegan Cafe with you! Below we have a popular and traditional noodle dish: Pad Thai. A cool thing about this cafe is how they let you dress up your dish! With little home made sauces and condiments such as vinegar, brown sugar, chillies, jalapeño soy sauce, peanuts, lime... to give you the chance to flavour it as you like!
2nd Dish: Peanut Satay (mock) Chicken Skewers. Their sauce is highly addictive (don't say I didn't warn you, I day dream about em'), paired with refreshing pickled cucumber and carrots - these skewers are a winner. The first time I tried this, I couldn't believe it wasn't actually chicken!
Now below we have a green curry and another one of my all time favourite item to get ~ Tom Kah Pak! Both is slightly on the spicier side, however pairing it with coconut rice really balances it out. Both items is packed with depth and flavour + lots of veggies!
The last 2 items that I've had is their Larb Salad and comforting veggie soup. The Larb Salad is eaten as lettuce wraps, the soy protein used for the lettuce wraps are cooked with wonderful traditional flavours of lemon grass, cilantro, mint, roasted peppers, lime and roasted rice and shallots.
Heart's Choices Thai Vegan Cafe also offers an array of different vegan desserts and snacks for people to take home with, below is my MUST GET before I go dessert: 3 Layer Square as they named it. (However in my mind it's more like here is a piece of Heaven Square). It's made up of rice krispy, peanut butter, chocolate, insanely good coconut cream + roasted coconut flakes! It's really really really yummy!
Heart Choices overall: $$ | Lots of parking | Super friendly staff | wonderful options! During lunch time they're often packed with a line (which is always a good sign!), so I wouldn't recommend going there during lunch if you're in a rush (or another option is to call first and order :P). Cheers to more fantastic vegan options here in Calgary!
