|Served with Pho: jalapeno, lime, bean sprout, Thai basil|
|This soup without the meats would be great for soothing an upset stomach|
Texture is big with these dishes and I think that's also why I enjoy them so much. The supple yet slightly chewy shrimp with crunchy bean sprouts and scallion are tied together with a savory liquid broth. The chopped peanuts atop the smooth peanut sauce add a nice crunch, as do the bean sprouts in the soft summer rolls. Varying the textures in dishes makes them more palatable. Texture is sexy.
I have no complaints about the service. I've been here several times and I've never had issues with seating and my order always arrives more quickly than anticipated. Although the staff is friendly, they're not ones to make small talk so if you enjoy "getting to know your server," this isn't the place for that. Their goals are to serve you what you would like to eat, and send you on your happy way with a belly full of goodness.
If you've never given Vietnamese cuisine a chance, I highly recommend you venture out of your comfort zone and give it a try; specifically give a Pho dish a try.
