Hoped this would be a good, less crowded alternative to Golden Deli. Ordered house special rice noodle soup, bean curd skin w/charbroiled pork & egg roll, and banh xeo.
The soup had rubbery shrimp & squid, and very tough pieces of pork liver, kidney, & stomach. Very little fried shallot, my favorite part of the dish, and no duck. Unacceptable.
Bean curd skin, pork, & egg roll were good, but not as good as Golden Deli. Egg roll skin was slightly gummy.
Banh xeo was a crispy crepe filled with bean sprouts & a few shrimp. Strong coconut flavor. VERY greasy.
Every time I try to break out of my Golden Deli/Pho Hien/Mr. Baguette rut, it never seems to work out.
