Fake Vietnamese in Real Neighborhood

Joathan Berman | Sep 24, 199704:16 PM     2

Three years ago, I told my neighbor, Mr. "Noodles on
28th" (Chinese at 3rd Ave.) that someone should open a
Vietnamese joint in our no-name 'hood. That someone
turned out to be Sam's, the popular competing Chinese
joint (3rd@29th). The new place is L'Annam (diagonally
across from Noodles). I'm sorry to say that this is
not, I repeat not the real thing that I get would get
from any joint South of Canal. Nice "decor" and cheap
lunch ...but in this area I have an astounding pick of
barato Indian, and others....
Now can someone finally recommend a killer Chinese
place in the 5 boroughs? (Please dont say Noodletown,
which does have some good stuff)
