Sen Viet – Hoxton

There’s no “hue” you’ll want to miss out on this restaurant ♥️ {ad – press sample}⁣

There a veggie Vietnamese joint in Hoxton serving up more vegan dishes than you could even imagine in your wildest dreams 💭

The team are also the most beautiful, generous humans 🥰⁣ They were so friendly, humble and generous.

Here are the dishes we tucked into. I have limited space here so visit my website for a more in depth review:⁣

🌱Vegetarian crackers⁣

💰£2⁣

🌱Caramelised aubergine tofu⁣

💰£8.90⁣

⁣💭Really tasty – Loved the combination of aubergine and tofu

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

 

🌱Slow cooked caramelised “fish” and green banana in clay pot⁣

💰£10.50⁣

⁣💭Beautiful flavours and the “fish” was incredibly realistic! Also enjoyed the soft texture of the green banana

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

 

🌱Xoigac fruit steamed sticky rice⁣

💰£2.50⁣

⁣💭I’ve never tried this fruit before but after this rice dish, I really want to. This was beautiful! It has quite an unusual flavour which I loved.

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

🌱Bun hue – Spicy noodle soup w/ “ham” & mixed veg⁣

💰£9.50⁣

⁣💭This was so tasty! I loved the comforting, flavoursome broth which had just the right amount of spice. It was also packed with veggies and vegan meats. Worked really well!

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

🏆 Fave dish

🌱Sweet & sour spare “ribs”⁣

💰£8.90⁣

⁣💭These were great! I wouldn’t say they were super similar to ribs but they were nice in their own right. They had a chewy texture and a really nice flavour. The sauce was thinner and more fragrant than other sweet and sour dishes I’ve had. It also had a bit of a kick to it.

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

🏆 Fave dish

 

🌱Mustard green rolls filled with “meat”, mushrooms, noodles⁣

💰£5.70⁣

⁣💭I wasn’t expecting these to be so tasty but I really enjoyed them. Flavoursome, fresh and stuffed with delicious mushrooms

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

🌱Grilled aubergine w/ tofu, mushrooms, onions & shallots⁣

💰£10.50⁣

⁣💭⁣Another really tasty dish. I loved the soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture of the aubergine.

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

 

🌱Salt & chilli tofu⁣ & mushrooms

💰£7.50⁣

⁣💭I really enjoyed this dish! The tofu was soft and had a nice crisp on the outside

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

 

🌱Crispy spring rolls⁣

💰£5.50⁣

⁣💭I love spring rolls and these were tasty. Crisp and not greasy, well stuffed too,

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

🌱Special fried rice

💰£9.50

⁣💭This was alright but perhaps a touch more salty and I didn’t love it as much as the sticky rice so I’d opt for that instead

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? No

 

🌱Betel leaf grill with “meat”, black fungus, shiitake mushrooms w/ vermicelli noodles⁣

💰£7.50⁣

⁣💭These were so unusual! I wasn’t sure what to expect but they’re quite unique and I enjoyed them a lot

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes

 

🌱”Fish” cakes made from yams, mushrooms, seaweed, black pepper & dill⁣

💰£7.50⁣

⁣💭I imagined these would be similar to fish cakes I grew up with but they were deep fried. I didn’t mind them but they weren’t my favourite fish

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? No

 

🌱Tofu summer rolls⁣

💰£5.50⁣

⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣💭This wasn’t my favourite dish. I liked the dipping sauce but thought the rolls themselves needed a bit more flavour

🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? No
