Vietnamese Restaurant

JBies | Jul 5, 2000 07:02 PM

Austin is filled with Vietnamese noodle houses. I haven't found a really outstanding restaurant yet, as they all seem to serve pretty much the same selection.

One, a bit out of the ordinary, is Sunflower. It's in the same shopping center as the Chinese restaurant I mentioned in an earlier post.

They have a few outstandingly different dishes amongst which are a Vietnamese salad, a fresh squid and bamboo shoot dish and a catfish firepot. Several other choices on the menu are beyond the usual noodle house fare.

According to the owner they are trying to stay away from a Chinese menu and maybe with more patronage and exposure they will expand their rather limited menu.

I recently had a whole Dungeness Crab prepared by the owner/chef which was to die for.

They also have an interesting Vietnamese crepe stuffed with bean sprouts and bits of chicken which is delicious.

I like the ambience of the restaurant with fresh flowers on the tables. A family owned restaurant they are helpful and friendly
