I live in Manhattan, but I was out in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn last night to by a car.
I'm excited I have a car now, but I am more excited because I found the best Vietnamese
restaurant in NYC!
The place is called Pho Hoai on 4th Avenue between 86th and 87th Streets.
As I'm not familiar with the neighborhood, I was very intrigued to find a very
authentic looking Vietnamese restaurant out there. So last night, after I got
my car, I went in for dinner. I had a good feeling when I walked in and all the staff
there were Vietnamese.
Since we were just the two of us, we didn't get to try many things, but
all of the four things we ordered were excellent. Very very authentic - none
of the overly sweet Vietnamese food you get in most places here.
I've spent some time in Vietnam, and I have to say it was one of the best
Vietnamese I've had in a loooong time. It is also very cheap.
I was so excited last night that
I even had a dream of posting about this place on Chowhound!
The only problem is that it is pretty far (from Manhattan).
But now that I found this place, I don't know if I can go anywhere else
If you are sick and tired of bad Vietnamese food, I highly recommend this place.
