tay do (flushing)

greatly enjoyed my dinner early sat. night at this off-the-radar-screen vietnamese restaurant on 40th road.

each dish was delivered as soon as it was finished. first to arrive, beef with lemongrass, green pepper, onions, and chile sauce. spicey but not hot, with all the ingrediants' flavors distinct and delicious. second to arrive, chicken with ginger, scallion, and onion. a generous amount of ginger permeating each delectible, deftly cooked bite. last to arrive, curry squid. unfortuneately, the squid was a little rubbery, but the curry was so flavorful (and deceptively spicey) that it didn't matter. also had an obligitory vn coffee with condense milk over ice (it was too hot out for the even more obigitory pho). interestingly, the beef and squid dishes became spicier the longer they stayed on the plate (¿maybe certain spices were added towards the end of cooking?).

service was pretty much delivery of dishes, but attentive when flagged down.

whoever owns this restaurant may own one somewhere else. another diner asked a person who was working there if he worked at another location, and he seemed to say, "yes".

¿anyone else been here?
