Vin Pearl - Dublin - Ulferts Center

This is the new Vietnamese restaurant just down from Singapore Old Town Cafe. I had lunch there today. This was somewhat challenging as its hard for me to go into this center and not eat at SOTC. But I showed willpower and went for it.

The space is very attractive. Hard wood floors on one side, tile on the other. Nice art work, nice chairs, etc. Service was gracious, friendly, and efficient. I would say there were about 12 people in there.

Menu has a nice variety but not overwhelming. They had a couple of Pho, and an array of noodle dishes. I went for the Vin Pearl House Noodles. It had shrimp, chicken, fried egg strips, noodles, cilantro, with a very nice peanut sauce. Very tasty and sort of reminded me of the sesame noodles I used to have back in NY. This was $9.00, which I thought was a little pricy, but they are clearly going for a more elegant experience than SOTC.

Everyone else seemed to be enjoying what they ordered. I will definitely go back and try some other items, to get a more definitive feel for what the kitchen can do.
