This Asian restaurant in Royal Oak is all about making things YOUR way

Whether you want things gluten-free, vegan, or loaded up with meat, they can make it for you

Are you tired of going to restaurants and asking them for a substitution because of an allergy, or double-checking that the dish you picked out is gluten-free? Well, Vera Asian in Royal Oak lets you customize your meal, so it can be made just how you like it. The best part, you actually get to watch it get created right in front of you.

The Executive Chef, Kenny Yan, and Manager Ava Villanueva joined Michelle Oliver on set to discuss their wide array of offerings.

One of their most popular dishes are their bowls, which you can build yourself. You start by choosing your base, either rice or noodles and then you load it up with their large selection of vegetables, sauces, and protein. Whether you are vegan, halal, gluten-free, or have an allergy, they can create a bowl that is perfect for you.

Speaking of gluten-free, their summer rolls are made with rice paper and filled with fresh veggies, herbs, shrimp, and vermicelli noodles making for a refreshing snack. On the menu, you will also find sushi, and a variety of other appetizers like egg rolls, dumplings, and crab rangoons.
