      Thanks. I'll hit up ramayani since that's closer. but i hope i might be allowed to just have that drink considering that the food was never very good.

        Simpang Asia for their Ice Alpokat (avocado smoothie)

        1. re: Servorg

          Yes, Simpang Asia.

          (Although we're also making some very nice ones at home now, using coconut milk, chocolate sauce, and a bit of warm caramel for "body".)

            OK reporting back on the Ice Alpokat at Simpang...

            Very, very good. BUT I still like the Vietnamese version at Saigon Flavour better.

            1. re: J.L.

              For me it's the difference between driving 2.5 miles to Simpang Asia or 25 miles to Saigon Flavour. Considering traffic and gas prices it isn't a no's even an easier decision than that.

                Ok, ok, ok.

                I'll hit both up very soon. Especially since both are pretty cheap too, I would presume. Under $5 a glass, perhaps ?

                What do you order for dishes at Simpang ?

        1. comes with a pair...

          Cafe M
          Euclid, Garden Grove.

            a pair ???

            Is this in reference to a cafe similar to Di Vang 2 ??? Are we on the same wavelength ?
