Relatively new kid on the block, we decided to give it a try, just in case it goes away as fast as its predecessor, which actually served rather delicious French crepes.
We ordered Pork and Prawn Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls ($6.95 for 3), Grilled Chicken Noodle Salad ($8.90) and Grilled Beef Combination Rice ($7.90). We were given a number tag number and we found a cosy corner to wait for our number to be called. Yes, you gotta pay attention!
The place was probably half-full with 5 to 6 tables of people, with some already eating their food, but we waited almost 30mins for our rice paper rolls! Another few more minutes for the combination rice… And more waiting for the salad… Not the place to go to if you are hungry to begin with… 😦 But I guess one has to wait for the meat to be grilled and the rice papers to be rolled… I’m sure the wait for Pho is much faster!
The food was actually not bad, or perhaps maybe we were too hungry 🙂 The meats have a hint of lemongrass and the spring rolls in the salad was crispy goodness! The raw cucumbers and bean sprouts, the pickled carrot and radish, were all crunchy and nice. We felt rather healthy… Haha! However, we did find that the salad and the rice paper rolls had mostly the same ingredients. The white vermicelli was quite plain and stuck together, but it went well with the dip.
Maybe we will come back to try the Pho someday!
