Here's something helpful to know when ordering at Le Viet. (Le Viet is the lovely place on 11th St. just north of Washington Avenue.)
If you order the excellent dish of shrimp in a pineapple cup, you can ask them to remove the shells. We didn't know this on our first visit, and our friend who ordered this dish loved it but didn't like the struggle of getting the shrimp out of the shells.
On our last visit a few days ago, she ordered the dish with "no shells." No problem. This is a very tasty dish, full of large delicious shrimp and good pineapple chunks.
We continue to enjoy this restaurant. My husband and another friend loved #17, pho with seafood.
I had a good time with the quail appetizer - messy, but delicious.
And we keep ordering #2 and #3, crispy spring rolls and cold summer rolls.
Le Viet is a beautiful place, and has become a favorite. It's byob, and not expensive.
