Business Spotlight: ChuMinh Tofu and Vegan Deli


  1. I’m so lucky that Chu Minh Deli is the most walkable eatery from my North Beacon Hill home. The vegan banh mi (in many flavors) and egg rolls are my go-to pandemic comfort food. Any time I’m out and about in that direction, I swing by there on my way home. The owner/chef, Tanya Nguyen, is possibly the kindest human in Seattle. She always sends you on your way with a free eggroll and an incredible sense of well-being.

  2. The owner here is sooooo nice. She provides free food on Sunday to those who can’t afford them. I come here once in a while and she always offer me extra food so I can try them. Their sandwiches are really good too. If you are vegetarian, this is definitely the spot to go in the ID

  3. I love this restaurant. The fact that so many offerings are gluten free as well as vegan makes my life easier, and everything is delicious. I have gone with friends who were leery because they love their meat, but they wound up going back to the buffet for seconds because it is soooooo gooooooooood!

  4. I am obsessed with Chu Minh! The Bahn Mis are reliably incredible and I have always had great experiences. You can barely even tell most of the food is vegan!
