I had put Planet Veg on my list of places to eat at in Vancouver because they had roti rolls. I was hoping they were going to be like the One Love Vegetarian in Toronto. We walked in and I thought oh I don’t know about this place…it just seemed like it wouldn’t be amazing food. When the food came out I again though oh…maybe we should have skipped this. It looks like just a burrito and an eh one at that. This is not going to be amazing like I had hoped. Boy was I wrong! It didn’t look like much but our roti roll was unbelievable! We ordered the Kathmandu roll which was a 12” spinach roti filled with cabbage, mixed vegetables cooked in spices, tomatoes, cucumber and crispy noodles with a jalapeno cilantro chutney.

I was iffy on the noodles – like it didn’t make sense in my head how that would be really good. The mixed veggies were just like the back of frozen carrots, corn, green beans, etc but they were spiced wonderfully! The combination of everything was just incredible – The noodles added a nice crunch, the sauce was delicious and not spicy, it all felt very light and healthy and perfect on a warm summery day. I was wishing we would have gotten more for the road. If I worked in the area I would stop by here for lunch all the time! We also tried the baked curry samosa. This was just alright – it did not have much flavor which surprised me since the roti roll was so flavorful.

Overall – Definitely stop in at Planet Veg. It is fast, cheap and incredibly good. Definitely try a roti roll!
