At a location that kisses the edge of Yaletown, Patrick Do and Amanda Clark, launched Do Chay Saigon Vietnamese (original location open at 1392 Kingsway) on Hamilton Street. On the quiet end of this uber-social neighbourhood, Do Chay has a cute cozy patio that is perfect for date night!

The plantbased menu features approachable Vietnamese fare with guests finding their Kingsway favourites available downtown. Guests can select from the all-day menu classics including cast-iron seared coconut rice cakes, black garlic eggplant, and vegan pho, along with neighbourhood specials and an expanded cocktail list.

“When we first opened our Kingsway location last year, we weren’t sure what to expect, but the community embraced us and continues to do so,” says Patrick Do, who will oversee Do Chay Yaletown with his sister, Victoria Do, and mom Yen Do. “We are excited for even more people to discover Do Chay and our commitment to approachable, plant-based Vietnamese food.”

Starters to consider are the refreshing Mango Salad with seitan, lime leaf, bird’s eye chili, peanut, onion, pickled carrots, and lime; and Do Chay Dumplings filled with bamboo, jicama, and peanuts with coconut milk and Ish Sauce.
