I've been reading the message board since I moved to Tampa but it's my first time posting. I wish there were a better search engine to research recommendations without repeating the same questions that others have asked (unless I'm missing something!). I'm looking for good Vietnamese in the Tampa/Clearwater area - live sort of near Westchase/Town and Country area.
I've seen the recommendations for Trang's but am wondering if there's something else on this side of Tampa. We will definitely try Trangs but would love something closer and easier to get to. I tried the Bamboo Flute a couple of times and it was good, sort of a hike as well if it's after work.
We moved here a few months ago from Pittsburgh, where we had a really cool Vietnamese "dive" that was cheap and dependably good.
Incidentally, we haven't found any good Chinese takeout or delivery near here and are getting discouraged... anybody live near here and have tips?
