Besides the Grand Opening Promotion, they will have FREE LUNCH FOR KIDS (UNDER 6) ON EVERY SUNDAY FROM 11AM TO 4PM (DINE-IN ONLY, ONE ITEM PER CHILD) , with the very delicious KID MENU.
LAN Restaurant promises to charm customers and remind them of Vietnamese culture and history through music, decor and, of course, food!
“LAN Restaurant is so much more than just a restaurant,” says owner, Lan Nguyen, who has been working since spring to open the Queen Street East restaurant. “It is actually more like a piece of art that combines perfectly the food passion of my husband, and the biggest dream of my life to bring a real image of beautiful Hanoi city, where I grew up, to Canada where I proudly call my second home,”
The family friendly menu features over 40 dishes that are super healthy, and won’t break the bank. You can order grilled stuffed squid with chilli garlic tomato sauce, Vietnamese shaking beef tenderloin with bell pepper and onion, sugarcane shrimp or a crunchy pancake stuffed with shrimp, pork, bean sprouts, mushrooms, served with fish sauce. Little ones can choose from pho, noodle soups, or egg fried rice and a spring roll and on Sundays kids under six eat for free.
Lan describes the menu as light yet fulfilling with minimal use of dairy, oils or MSG.
“Dishes are flavoured with real ingredients,” adds Lan’s husband, Denny, who designed the menu with family recipes he enjoyed in Northern Vietnam. “Fresh herbs and vegetables dominate each plate.”
From the dessert menu, you can order steamed banana cake garnished with coconut milk and peanut, coconut jello or fried banana with ice cream. If you’re in the mood for liquid tiramisu, try the egg yolk coffee.
The spacious, yet cozy, restaurant can accommodate up to 90 guests in two dining rooms joined by a hallway. LAN Restaurant is decorated to look like a Vietnamese home circa 1930 with warm lanterns, aged solid wood tables, brown couches, terracotta shingles, art from King Khai Dinh’s dynasty and a Buddha shrine.
All staff will wear handmade uniforms for a genuinely Vietnamese dining experience.
“We put all of our passion into every single detail for both food and the decor to show Canadians the real beautiful culture of Vietnamese people, as well as the most delicious and authentic Vietnamese northern and southern cuisine,” says Lan.
