This place couldn't be more heartwarming and belly satisfying! The nuns are such nice people, but be patient, they aren't fluent in English! If you like Vietnamese food, you'll adore this place.
The Vietnamese Crepe is a staple, made vegan, only on the weekends, but worth the wait! It's always busiest on weekends around lunch, so be patient.
The tasty Vietnamese dumplings are filled with a tasty but light mung bean filling, just be aware that the dough is a glutinous rice-based dough, so it's not your traditional dumpling! The best roll to get is the sushi roll: the combination of the seaweed, cilantro and peanut-y sauce is other-wordly! Egg rolls are also fabulous! If you want a fresh untraditional lettuce-filled salad, go for the papaya salad, it's sensational!
As for noodles, you can't miss a beat with the vegan yellow noodles or the flat noodles, the flavor is wonderful but simple, but very satisfying! All the noodles bowls are delicious, if you are familiar with this kind of fare. Unbelievably filling, great portions!
Entrees that are favorites include the green beans with mock chicken, Thu's spicy tofu, veggie fish and the fish and veggies plate (tasty ginger dipping sauce). All entrees come with your choice of rice, go for brown, yum!
Of course, if you're ultra-traditional, the soups will not let you down, classic-style pho for the vegan! Great on a cold and/or rainy day!
Wonderful atmosphere, reasonable prices and great portion sizes. Bring cash unless you spend over $15!
