The more I eat here and the more I explore the menu the more I fall in love with that place. I've had the bbq pork banh mi, the combo banh mi, the pork spring rolls, the chicken hot pocket pastry thing, the pork and shrimp noodle soup and the pork and chicken noodle soup. All of it is fantastic!

Can anyone recommend some other can't miss dishes?

I want to try some of the stuff behind the glass at the front, like the bao (i think the guy said there is spinach and chicken in them?) and the gigantic block of sticky rice. Well i think it's sticky rice, it looks like a huge brick lotus leaf with red strings around it.

This is a true 'hound place.

    Love this place. The grilled lemongrass pork banh mi is fantastic, as is their iced coffee. I want to explore more of the menu myself but always get stuck on the banh mi. I suspect I'll soon try one of their rice or noodle dishes, or maybe even their pho.

    Great spot.
