I am looking for a good restaurant owned by Chinese from Vietnam that serves an extensive Chinese and Vietnamese menu in or around Herndon. Dishes in particular I am seeking is phở áp chảo/hủ tiếu áp chảo, good mi xao don, crab steamed with rice inside lotus leaf, teo chew style rice cake in omelette, good salt and pepper/rang muoi seafoods with cornstarch dip, not over-battered, fresh seafood. Also good if they have good Chinese BBQ, particularly duck. Any recs?
I was in Herndon area this weekend and will be relocating there shortly...I saw loads of pho houses (ate at Pho 75, which was great) but didn't spot any extensive-menu VN or Chinese-VN restaurants, or Hong Kong/Cantonese-looking places despite digging on Yelp and taking a tour of "ethnic" restos and groceries (which thankfully Herndon and surrounding areas are chock full of. ) Please tell me I just missed the Chinese-Vietnamese places like the ones I so love in Houston and Austin, Texas. Am I gonna have to go to DC Chinatown for my fix?
