Vietnamese in Central Jersey.

After reading and posting on several treads about central jersey eats, It dawned on me that I have yet to read about a restaurant that opened about a year ago and I only found last May. Thanh Hoai II, It's a branch of the old Miss Saigon in Jersey City. Where by the way ,my wife and I would drive to for good Vietnamese food.They are in the strip mall on Rt 9 south in South Amboy: 960 RT 9 south. Phone:732 727 2000.Their menu and quality of food is far better than Pho Anh Dao in Edison, who uses a hogie roll for their Banh Mi and can't supply you with Nam Pla when asked.The Pho's are solid and tasty but ask them to heat up the broth for you. I like mine HOT. Try the flounder when in season, Fried dry and crisp in a light tangy sauce with a hint of lemon grass and Thai basil,# 96 on the menu. The Bo Luc Luc, grilled beef cubes over asian water cress, #110. Give it a shot and I think you'll like it.
