Tay Do Vietnamese in the Eden Center

sekelmaan | Jul 12, 2010 11:05 AM

I have been grazing through the menu at Tay Do and Lux Cafe (same menu and ownership). The Vietnamese sausage rolls are fantastic. I have tried a hotpot which is a really fun and long eating process - did I mention delicious? Today being hungover from yesterday's game I was going to try the pho, but was steered in a different direction by my waiter to try:

Hu Tieu Mi Tom, Thit (Soup or crispy), number 74.

This is a large soup (or dry) with either clear noodles or egg noodles with pork and shrimp and a shrimp cracker. It was outstanding. It has a rich chicken stock for the base and ground pork, sliced pork, shrimp, clear noodles, scallions and herbs. I added a few more herbs and a lime and magically my hangover is cured. I recommend this highly for both hung and non-hung over days. There are other variations with fish balls, liver, pork blood, etc, but today I was feeling unadventurous. I will surely try one others soon.
