How I heard of this place: Through the Entertainment book. My friend Dionne and I were looking for a pho restaurant in our neighborhood and came across this place (which earned four stars on Yelp).
Type of cuisine: Vietnamese & Chinese cuisine.
Ambiance: A brightly colored space and perky, friendly staff, welcome you as you enter the purple, orange and lime green space with geometric shapes painted and hung on the walls. The space is small, yet spacious, with few tables crowding the one-room restaurant. Casual to the extent that you are seated, yet pay the bill at the register on your way out.
What I ordered: To start, we ordered the goi cuon (fresh spring rolls) with rice noodles, lettuce, bean sprouts, cilantro and shrimp ($3.95). It came highly recommended by others online. My dining companion ordered the pho chay ($6.95), vegetarian noodle soup, with mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, celery and onion served in vegetarian broth. (Fried or white tofu was also offered, by she chose to leave it out.) I ordered menu item 40 (on the restaurant menu) which offered grilled shrimp and a plethora of vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, onion and celery) sauteed in ginger, garlic and soy sauce. It was served alongside steamed, white rice.
What I loved: Both my dining companion and I most preferred the spring rolls, which were served with a light, yet creamy peanut sauce, sprinkled with chopped peanuts and hot sauce.
Why I loved it: I loved that it was quick, the food adequate and filling and the price great (buy-one-get-one-free coupon).
Cost: Average ($6-$8 for lunch entree)
