Anh - a Vietnamese restaurant

So enjoyable...we went on Saturday and Sunday for dinner.

Saturday was a long slumber. We finally got motivated, had brunch at the Sunflower diner on 26th and 3rd Ave (by the way, very good for diner fare) and walked by Anh. I think my wife and I were both craving Vietnamese food for some reason lately, and sure enough, when we walked by it, we looked at each other and said..."we're coming here tonight". The place itself is pretty cool. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating. Despite the cool room with "Mod" lighting - multi-sized circular ceiling lights (some quite large) in primary colors, we opted to eat outside both nights (the weather was perfect!).

Some inconsistencies in both the menu descriptions and the way the items tasted from night to night. For example, vermicelli and angel hair pasta was listed in different meals but all ended up as being the same. As for taste, the Sangria was far better on Saturday (lots of diced apple chunks) verses Sunday (which had more of the asian fruit lichee (sp?)).

We also had the following dishes, that were great.

* Vietnamese Crispy Spring Rolls
* Ahi Tuna in rice paper with lemongrass, sesami seeds and a delicious dipping sauce
* Beef in camphorlike sesame leaves (I think that's what it was)
* Pork with Vemicelli (angel hair) and peanuts

* Lemongrass Chicken with Lime/Scallion dipping sauce
* Ahi Tuna (again)
* Vietnamese Crispy Spring Rolls (Again)
* Beef with Vermicelli (angel hair) and peanuts

All very good.
