Sunflower Report

It's been years since I had visited Sunflower for Vietnamese food at 16th & Valencia, and after my meal I couldn't figure out why it took me so long to return.

After encountering a line at the Valencia Street entrance, Mrs. CB and I made haste to the 16th Street side and were quickly seated. We ordered the Shaking Beef, Sunflower Tiger Prawns over Garlic Noodles, the Lemongrass Chicken, steamed rice, and a large Saporo. Total with tip & tax: $51.00.

All three entrees were served fresh and were bursting with individually unique flavors. The large portion of Shaking Beef was as tender as anywhere else I have tried it and the huge prawns were so tasty I felt obligated to gnaw on the shells. Good stuff.

Service was brisk and no-nonsense. It was nice not to have to ask for the check for a change...or even the doggy boxes for that matter.

I hope it doesn't take me so long to return again.
