Another newish Vietnamese spot in the Lakes/Spring Valley area. This one can be a tough find, as it’s tucked away in a small, mostly empty strip mall behind Arby’s off of Durango. You’ll be hard pressed to find friendlier service than at this family-run spot. Fried pork spring rolls ($5) were good, particularly the ones that were extra crispy and they’re a bargain with five large rolls per order.
The way they name dishes can be odd for anyone familiar with Vietnamese fare. Bún is called “salad noodle bowls”. I guess they anticipated a customer base new to the cuisine. Regardless, the grilled pork bún ($9.95) was excellent, although light on pork and heavy on noodles. A better deal is the House salad noodle bowl ($11.95) full of shrimp, chicken, pork, and fried spring rolls that won’t leave you hungry.
Pho isn’t my favorite soup, but I’ll order it from time to time. The beef rice noodle soup ($8.25), ordered to-go, was neatly packaged into three separate containers to keep each set of ingredients as fresh as possible. The broth — thin and slightly under seasoned — was a good compliment to the chilly weather.
