After striking out on a crab quest for Pilinut at Bodega Bistro last week, the 4 of us went on to Vietnam House to at least scratch the itch for excellent banh khot. After our cravings were satiated, we had a conversation with the owner/manager of Vietnam House about whether they do crab as it's not on the menu. He said he could do a tamarind crab as a special order & told us he could also do a special grilled catfish.
We put our heads together and found that 7 of us could make it today. Cynsa took the lead and special ordered for us:
Tamarind Crab $30
Grilled Catfish $30
Banh Khot $7.95 (7 per order)
Then we added to the order:
Shaking beef with garlic noodles
Meat & egg pie
Everyone else please add your comments and Cynsa please add your excellent photos.
My main comment is that I'd really like to see more customers at this restaurant. There food is carefully prepared and thoroughly enjoyable. With the plethora of Vietnamese restaurants in the neighborhood, the competition is fierce. I don't want to see this place go away...
