After inquiring on the board yesterday, hubbie and I headed to the new Vietnamese place on Sawtelle- Hanoi Cafe (thank Joe). The place was all in all a very good experience, and I overheard several customers raving about it- often times comparing it to Saigon on Santa Monica and declaring Hanoi Cafe the winner.
The menu was limited, but I would say comparable to many other vietnamese restaurants in the area. 6 appetizers (4-6), 3 Bun entrees (5.95-7.00), 4 soup entress (6.50-7.00), ice cream for dessert and several beverage choices (a tad expensive). Big Plus! They have a liquor license so you can enjoy wine and beer with your meal.
We enjoyed an order of spring rolls, a neat shrimp and beef omlette thingy (with which you build your own spring roll type thingies), and the shrimp and beef bun. All of the ingredients were super fresh and the portions were large. There is a small outdoor section which added to that "fresh" feel. The indoors look sparse and modern- but very nice. Service was great and they deliver a short distance. Total for 2 aps, 1 entree, 1 beer and 1 lemonade plus tax and tip- $26.
