P. and I went to Vung Tau II Restaurant for lunch 9/19/06. This place is big inside and they have A/C.

Ordered from the large menu (there are 179 food items, then 31 drink items) and from Yelp reviews decided on #81 bun tom bo-grilled onion beef & prawns served on top of rice stick noodle w/ beansprout, mint & chop salad $8.95 I thought it was good, not enough meat for me, I noticed about 3 beef onion rolls and 3 grilled prawns butterflied. I had a good amount of noodles and saved some meat for leftovers.

P. ordered #88 banh hoi thit nuong-grilled pork served w/ steamed vermicelli & fresh vegetables $9.95. He was confused on how to eat this. Slabs of folded steamed noodles w/ the grilled pork on the side, then separate dish for the lettuce, cucumbers, etc. I think he liked it ok. He brought his leftover home.

free ice water given w/ a slice of lime.

I got #192-ca phe sua da-Vietnamese coffee w/ ice & milk $2.95-just was pre-made instead of the drip kind that they bring out at other places.

P. got #184 soda chanh-soda lemonade $2.50-he liked it, but noticed the soda wasn't brought out separate, it was pre-made for him.

Separate men and women's bathroom. Women's had 2 stalls and was pretty clean inside.

Total before tip was $26.36! Expensive lunch. Probably won't be back. They take credit cards, you'll need it.
