An Chay – Vegetarian Vietnamese? Yes please!

An Chay  opened in the old Pitaghetti place on Jasper at 112 Street and it has taken me almost a year to stop in and taste their food. That was a mistake.

Pitaghetti didn’t last long, but the tile work they left behind will last a lifetime. (Unfortunately.)

I don’t blame the owners of An Chay for not spending the time and money it would take to remove what I’m sure is the glossiest tile in the universe. Thankfully, the food is SO good, you just end up losing yourself in the awesome flavours and aromas of whatever is placed before you.

Listen here to my review with Mark Connolly on CBC, or read the web article here.

Feast your eyes on the food below, and then go feast in real life at An Chay (11203 Jasper Ave., Edmonton.)
