What this plain little eatery lacks in location and décor it makes up a hundred fold with delicious authentic food at rock bottom prices. Step inside and the clientele are all but exclusively Vietnamese as is the menu, the taped up signs on the walls, the blaring television and the thermos of complimentary tea with the condiments at each table.
The menu itself offers a foray into traditional regional dishes not usually found in inner city establishments: steamed rice flour cakes with pork and shrimp, BBQ pork in steamed rice paper sheets, vermicelli with crab mousse or special pho with offal.
The beverage list also contains more than the usual suspects: try the divine fresh coconut or lychee (logan)juice, both with real pieces of the fruit incorporated or the refreshing sweet peanut or green bean milk.
