Lau Hai San-- South San Jose

Ken Hoffman | Mar 16, 2013 09:11 AM

Just opened on Chinese New Years, Lau Hai San Hot Pot sits behind the venerable Thanh Huong Sandwiches on Senter Road, just north of Umberger. No coincidence since it is owned by the son of the sandwich maker. It is a spick and span sit down place with booths and tables that boasts daily fresh delivery of all its perishable ingredients. Very friendly waitstaff, extensive menu of Vietnamese favorites. My bun (picutred below) was flawless in flavor and presentation. The grill beef with onion was that perfect combination of tender seared beef with a sweet crunch of onion chaser. The eggrolls had the blistered skin like a severe sunburn with a balanced pork, herb and glass noodle filling conjoined in culinary matrimony by a refreshing nuom choc. A great new addition to the many choices that dot the Monterey highway area corridor.
