2013-10-23 12:10:34   I had the bun with pork and crispy egg roll, a staple of Vietnamese lunches everywhere. Service was a bit slow and lacking, but at least the place looked nice and clean. Pork was too salty, noodles were just a bit tough, the sauce was fairly bland (and not enough was served), and the serving size was OK for the price, but just barely. All in all, amongst Vietnamese restaurants in town, it's distinctly average. Good if you are in the area, but hardly worth a long ride. New Ming's makes better bun for about $1 less per bowl. —alex-c

The service is very quick, professional, and friendly. Dishes I’ve had include the turnip cake with egg, duck noodle soup, banh cuon, and bo la lot. The turnip cake with egg is better than other places and a bigger portion for the price. It’s soft and tasty, yet has a nice crispy texture that others do not have. The duck noodle soup has a light and clean tasting broth with moist duck meat, but the portion could be bigger. The banh cuon (Vietnamese rice rolls) has chewy gelatinous rice rolls with pork inside and topped with veggies and slices of a Viet version of mortadella or german leberkase (don’t know what it’s called) . . . very delicious. But the best dish is the bo la lot (beef rolls wrapped in betel leaf and grilled). The beef rolls are served with veggies, vermicelli noodles, and an excellent dipping sauce. You take these ingredients with rice paper that you soak yourself in water and wrap the ingredients to make your own fresh spring rolls. These are one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten . . . a stellar dish and a must have. —DaveHanks
