Invitation V for vegan fine-dining

Vegan fine-dining? About time! Last night we went to the lovely Bistro Invitation V in the Mile End. From what I gathered, Invitation V’s aim is to provide local organic vegan food in a more upscale setting. I appreciated the ambience from the moment I walked in — it was classy but laid back. The decor was simple, elegant and clean and the menu was elaborate with choices from different international cuisines. Everything sounded very appetizing and since I was dining with friends, we each ordered and shared everything!

Invitation V highlights:

STARTERS:

The Rustic Onion Soup, unlike classic French onion was light, velvety and you can’t go wrong with onions.

The gluten-free Smokey Dumplings had an impressive presentation. Served in a basket which releases smoke (not steam), it got lots of “ouus” and “ahhs.” The dumplings themselves were made from tofu skins which are often used in vegetarian sushi and stuffed with shredded veggies.

The last entree that we tried was the Seitan Satay.  We got the large portion for 15$ but a smaller version was available for $6.

These satay skewers brought me to a very happy place. I first discovered vegan satay when I traveled to SE Asia. Vegan satay is usually made from seitan or a soy based product and served with a bad ass peanut sauce. When Satay Bros and other SE Asian places starting popping up in Montreal, I expected someone to offer the vegan version but I hadn’t found it until now.  Invitation V’s version was scrumptious and comparable to the authentic ones that I had in Asia. They had a grilled BBQ taste and the peanut sauce was just to die for. A must try!

MAINS:

I always go for the Vegan Burger because I like to compare veggie burgers from one place to another. The burger tasted like falafel and the thick french fries were spectacular! They were some of the best fries I’ve had in a while — my friends couldn’t keep their hands off of them.

Then there was the gluten-free Signature Hot Pot.

The hot pot was made with home-made tofu and organic veggies but the highlight for me was the tamale with peanut topping. The presentation is really cool but it is a little tricky to maneuver so I’d save this for the the adventurous types.

Lastly the gluten-free New Orleans Crab-Less Cake were by far my favourite. Yum!  The full flavoured basil sauce packed a punch with the crunchy “crab” cakes and the salad was very fresh.

DESSERT:

All the desserts truly looked fantastic, but I’ve only tried one: The chocolate oat based square. Sweet, chocolatey and fruity with a tart berry coulis. Delish.

If you check it out, be sure to try: 

  • Crab-less cake;
  • The satay;
  • Dessert.

Invitation V a little on the pricier side ($20 – $35 without drinks), at first glance it seemed overpriced, but after considering the fact that the ingredients were 80% organic, it’s more justified. I think that for vegans, healthy folk or the gluten intolerant, it’s a great place to try.

I really appreciate that this type of place exists in Montreal because it provides vegans a quiet, romantic environment for finer dining.
