- well, almost, if I lived in Düsseldorf. But good news is that Jade's also delivers within the city so I could order in from work :)
As couple of weeks ago I read that a Chinese diner in Bilk had changed to all vegetarian (mostly vegan) options after being a regular omni place for ten years or so.
Two weeks ago, I finally went there and was thrilled- though it's got the size and atmosphere of a small greasy takeout place (there are five or six seats available, ok but far away from comfortable or fancy), they've got all the fake meat/fish options, authentic Thai cuisine and some creative own fusion food dished at reasonable prices.
Not to forget a slightly wonky but charming chef and a piggy on top of the fridge:
For starters, I had the second-best Tom Yum soup in my life, and I've had a lot of it. I nearly choked on this one when Chrissy asked me who this "Tom Yum guy" is and told me it sounds like it's the name of an Asian foodie ^^
Then I ordered a Thai curry with seitan and fake bacon... I know, boring choices but both are my favourite Thai dishes and it's easy to judge a restaurant's quality by these items. The fake bacon was a bit too realistic to me, the seitan good and the veggies awesome.
Chrissy had some mock duck and veggie stir fry dish with an ovo-vegetarian fish patty that I can't review (the only downside of the place- fake fish is made with egg, anything else is or can be ordered to be made vegan).
I also had a Bionade, paid 10 € and left the place stuffed and happy, planning to return very soon (hopefully this Friday!).
Sorry for the crappy pictures, we went directly after work so I didn't take my camera.
For anybody who's in the area and would like to check out the place, this is their website with the complete menu.
