Cheap, tasty Viet-Thai food

Ben Thanh (commonly known as B & T) is a great Viet-Thai restaurant in downtown Hamilton. The food is excellent, for the price, and there are plenty of options for vegetarians and vegans. The restaurant is a bit grubby and is almost always crowded, but the crowds are testament to the popularity of the food. They sell enormous bowls of soup for a few dollars.

Right next door is an Asian grocery which sells all manner of Asian foods and specialty items. Lots of cheap exotic fruits and veggies, fresh tofu, and a huge variety of noodles.

This restaurant isn't 100% vegetarian, but they do have a separate page in their menu for just vegetarian foods. I always order the same thing here, the hot and sour soup, with a side of rice or rice vermicelli. Place the rice in the bowl, and ladle the soup into the bowl. The small bowl of soup is enough for 2 people. Delicious. Not a fancy place, the wait staff are efficient, worth the trip.
