From the first whiff as we stepped into Vietnam Restaurant, I knew we were in for something good.
As we walked through the little noodle house, well, more like hallway, the bouquet of imperial rolls crisping in a wok sea filled the air.
My friend recommended that I order the beef stew noodle. Unfortunately they ran out. They even ran out of the chicken curry noodle which was Plan B. No biggie. Instead, I went along with the waiter’s recommendation for the #16 Spicy Beef Noodle. While we waited, my friend ordered a coke. Our waiter brought him a can of coconut juice. I liked that.
I liked what I ate even more. Four words: To the last drop. This bowl was loaded with spicy beef and sliced ham (the dish is traditionally served with pig knuckle, but that’s OK).
My committed search for SF’s best noodles is just getting better. I hear they do good bahn mi too. From the feel of this place, I’m thinking it’s has been here for a while. I think I’ll keep this place company more often.
