Tasty meal on the suburban streets

This tiny eatery is a little elusive, but it does exist! You won’t find it on Google Maps, but if you search for Holy Land Homestay, the eatery is next door (to the left of the homestay entrance). On our first attempt at about 7pm one night, the eatery wasn’t there and no signage, I think it’s more of a breakfast/ lunch place. As we were staying right nearby, we had another look on a different day at about 12.30pm, and tables had been put out and there was a small sign on the sidewalk.
No menu and no English spoken, no problem though! I’m not sure what other things they actually serve, but we ended up going here twice and had the same thing each time. The lady showed us a bowl of plain noodles and we nodded yes, so she prepared us a bowl each with noodles, broth and various vegetables, mock meat, peanuts, tofu, and different add-ins on the side like fresh lime, lettuce, sprouts, soy and chilli sauce. I think the dish we had was mi quang (local noodle dish). Cost was 20,000 dong per bowl which was a good portion size, though my boyfriend went for seconds.

Pros: very authentic, quick meal, cheap! (20k per dish)

Cons: unsure of opening hours or menu
