Humble family-owned spot for quality Vietnamese food.
My stomach fell in love here during my short 24-hour business trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. This wins for the best bowl of pho that I've had in my lifetime. (I have yet to go to Vietnam!)
Disclaimer: I went with the eldest daughter of the chef who popped into the kitchen to order some of her recommendations. I didn't know what to expect until everything showed up at the table!
\ pho (rib eye, brisket, tendon, meat ball)
- this broth is a work of art. it is the product of 48 hours of simmering bone marrow. there's a deep hearty earthiness that just cannot be reproduced any other way.
- every single piece of meat was so very tender and velvety soft.
- i'm not usually one to have more than just rib eye or brisket in my pho, but i must highlight the tendon here. it offers just enough resistance for a silky chewy texture but is also so flavorful and soft!!
- comes with the standard set of veggies (bean sprouts, cilantro, basil, lime) but these were all so so fresh
\ gi cun (Vietnamese summer rolls)
- comes with a generous amount of meat in it, too, which really packs some yum
- so many veggies! this could be a really healthy and balanced meal.
- you could dip it in peanut sauce, but i would recommend giving the house dipping sauce, Nc Chm (fish sauce), a try. it's fish sauce elevated with lemon and garlic.
\ banh xeo (Vietnamese crepe)
- crispy giant turmeric-colored thin "crepe" stuffed with a delicious stirfry of shrimp and caramelized onions
- comes with a cucumbers, carrots, and a stack of iceberg lettuce to make lettuce wraps (it's like fajitas... but using lettuce makes it taste fresher and lighter!!)
- dip in the fish dipping sauce and try to eat the wrap in one bite!
\ bun cha (pork lettuce wraps)
- you eat this in a similar way, by wrapping everything in the giant lettuce leaves
- the pork is savory and flavorful
- again, lots of fresh and colorful veggies!!
When my friend first ordered all this, her mother laughed, doubting that we could finish it all. We did our best, but I did end up taking leftovers with me back home to Dallas... no regrets.
All this was less than $40, which is impressive to me considering the worth of the serious quality that they offer.
Very small hole in the wall type unassuming spot. Just how I prefer it.
The spring rolls were fantastic. The pho was really good. Highly recommended.
Its located in a sketchy looking section with boarded up but don't get discouraged by this. This is a hidden gem.
Staff was super nice & kind. Bathroom was clean. If you are in the area, you must try it.
Great Vietnamese food. Pho was delish and you can tell they put a lot of effort in the broth. Highly recommended
I pass by this place all time but never gave it chance due to some negative reviews I over heard. Today my husband insisted we give it a try. Walk in and was greeted by very friendly server. She spoke good English, but it's not that I don't speak Vietnamese anyways. Lol( helpful for English customers) We order pho ga & tai ( chicken & beef) soup. My daughter order bun bo hue. To our surprise all 3 came out perfectly well flavored. The portion size was good too. If anything, I felt they gave us too much noodles. Not that I'm complaining. They were also heroes with the vegetables for the soups. I have to admit they was very quick on service. We didn't wait but maybe 5-7 min for our food to come out. Only complaint is the AC is a bit weak. On these hot summer days, I like eat my hot soup in a cold restaurant.
They open up at 8am and close at 8pm daily. I been here a couple of times and I find myself coming back more and more because their Pho broth is just so good.
Its different then many places because its very light but strong with all the aromatics from the herbs and spices. The noodles are perfectly cooked al dente and the meats are piled on and they provide you with a fresh side of bean sprouts and thai basil with slices of jalepeno and limes on the side to complement your pho. We ordered Pho dac biet xe lua. Dac biet translating to specialty mean specialty pho with all the different cuts and slices of beef such as brisket, meatballs, tendon and even tripe plus many more. Xe lua meaning train translating into big as train as in extra large bowl of pho. We also went ahead and ordered the red curry which was very pleasing to eat early in the morning because of all the spices and that creamy coconut milk. We went ahead and picked our protien which was chicken and it comes with green bell pepper, carrots, and bamboo shoots. I wish the green pepper was cooked a little longer but other than that everything was outstanding. They give you a side of rice to go along with the curry as well. Overall vung tau is my spot to go to for my vietnamese fixings. The name Vung Tau is a southern city in Vietnam with coastal living as well.
