ate today at Ti An, or Cho Lon, on 8th and 56th in Sunset Park which had been recommended by a few posters on this board. I found the food severely lacking: greasy, dull-tasting, not super fresh--in a word, mediocre.
I would really like to find a vietnamese place that I like in brooklyn. There was one I went to a few years ago in bensonhurst that was okay, but none of the sunset park ones have been too good.
Decent pho, but more important, fresh, well-grilled meats on rice thread squares, with fresh pickled veggies and a plate of fresh lettuce and more than one herb. Where can i get that?
For comparison, my favorite rendition of the rice square dishes was at the pho bang on mott street in the late 80s/early 90s. Unfortunately, it's a shadow of its former self today.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
