bo de duyen vs buddhist kitchen
Can someone compare these two places? Which has the tastier gluten products - what is the "technical" name of those faux meats?
I really like buddhist kitchen but it's up on Midland/Finch and I'm a downtown girl. Would love to get my fix of gluten meats downtown.
Never been to Buddhist Kitchen, so I'm sorry I can't compare.
Aside from Bo De Duyen and Cafe 668, I've enjoyed seitan (another name for gluten) at:
-Buddha's (666 Dundas W.); also, do try the "duck"--made of yuba and ridiculously good
-Simon's Wok (Gerrard E. near Logan)
Also, the grocery at the northeast corner of Dundas and Spadina usually has a sample platter in the refrigerated section of faux meats, ready to heat and eat.
Mmmm...I love me some fake meat!!
Cafe 668 has moved (or will soon be moving) to 885 Dundas West. They're keeping the name, but the new place is much more stylish. Not sure how much the menu will be changing, if at all.
And Bo De Duyen is moving as well. The lease is up at the end of Sept, and they're moving out to Dundas West near Roncesvalles.
Glad to hear about 668, as I have not been there this summer.
More tables would be a good thing.
Excellent veg., and very nice people as well.
We sent a buddhist funeral meal from 668, and they included, without charging, plates, cutlery, and drinks (which I had forgotten to ask).
