Have you ever had Vietnamese and Mexican fusion food in Vancouver?
I didn’t know such cuisine existed until I stumbled upon VietMex in downtown Vancouver.
VietMex–formerly Saigon Venture restaurant–is located on Burrard Street between Drake and Pacific Street, just before you get onto the Burrad Street Bridge. I read on Yelp that the former owner sold the restaurant, but she still works in the kitchen.
From their website, they write “Vietmex Cuisine is your destination for Vietnamese and Mexican Cuisine. Located in downtown Vancouver, we offer a delicious fusion of Vietnamese meets Mexican dishes“.
They serve standard Vietnamese restaurant offerings including pho, banh mi, rice and vermicelli dishes. They have a combo that comes with a soup, 2 tacos and a pop for $12.50.
Their Mexican offerings are limited to just tacos. They have five kinds: pollo, carnitas, lemongrass chicken, beans and cheese, and beef.
They have a good selection of noodle soup including the vegetarian and seafood options.
