Eating Vegetarian Cambodian Food at La Petite Mangue

Glutty Vegan By Glutty Vegan Published on May 20, 2016

Asian food in general is some of the best food to eat when vegetarian.  When you think of the wealth of foods that are available when you're eating Indian, Thai, or Chinese, then you wonder why Western vegan and vegetarian food is perceived to be so "vanilla."  Although there's been an explosion of new vegan and vegetarian recipes and restaurants in recent years, when I'm interested in something tasty I still go to Asian food.

I had never had Cambodian food before, so I was really excited to try it.  For those of you that don't know, Cambodia is located between Thailand and Vietnam.

There's a restaurant in Montreal called La Petite Mangue that's conveniently located in the Plateau.  At lunch time, they have a special lunch menu that comes with an appetizer, a main, and tea.

Vegetarian Spring Roll and Mango Salad at La Petite Mangue

To start I got a little mango salad and a vegetarian spring roll.  The spring roll was delicious - crispy, with a nice sweet sauce.  The mango salad was fresh and great.

Red Curry with Tofu at La Petite Mangue

For my main, I had Red Curry with Tofu.  I asked for them to make mine extra spicy.  The red sauce was lovely, although I do wish I had a little more rice.  You can always ask for more rice and they'll bring it for you.

Crispy Noodle Bowl at La Petite Mangue

My coworker ordered the Crispy Noodles, where you get a selection of stir fried vegetables in a noodle bowl.  The noodle bowl itself is rigid at the beginning but softens as it soaks up the sauce.  

They had many other things on the menu that I look forward to trying in the future, including the Peanut Butter dish (I would substitute tofu for the chicken).  I'm also eager to try their Pad Thai.

I would definitely go back again!
