Blue Hen--new Vietnamese in Eagle Rock

Slow Foodie | Dec 20, 200405:03 PM

It's right across from pup's school so we've been watching the construction eagerly. We made it for dinner on Friday evening. They've been open about a week and a half. The atmosphere reminds me of Gingergrass--modern and minimal but quite pleasant. The servers were very nice but it is definitely called The Blue Hen for a reason. Chicken. Chicken. Chicken. There are 4 appetizers--3 with chicken and 7 entrees--6 with chicken, hence, it's aptly named. There's one vegetarian entree--Mama Luu's tofu which was tasty but very simple and quite a small portion for $8.25. The pups had pho which was very nice and mild flavored. Not complex but soothing and satisfying nevertheless, also $8.25. We started the meal with an order of vegetarian imperial rolls which were burnt and greasy and pretty nasty tasting. We'll give the place another chance. The food, except the imperial rolls, tasted quite good and the servers were very sweet. The menu notes that they support local farms and buy organic whenever possible.
