I noticed a new name at the former Bun Mang Vit Than Da on E 12th St and 6th Ave in Oakland and stopped in for a quick bite. I ordered the chanh muoi (salty lemonade) and mi quang.
The mi quang was a very refreshing meal on a hotter than usual day, and very filling for a medium portion at $7.25. The turmeric stained yellow hofun were served with two perfectly cooked shell-on shrimp, pork riblets, and chicken slices in a light broth, with just the right amount of peanuts and scallions. The accompaniments included lettuce, tailed beansprouts, lime, mild chilis, and banana blossom slices, along with fish sauce and housemade chili sauce. It was all very well balanced. I'll be back, particularly for some specials I haven't heard of, such as wild boar, deer, and hen xuc banh trang (baby clams with vietnamese chips). The bun bo Hue looks good in yalp pictures, too.
