Thien An Restaurant

Thien An is a new Vietnamese restaurant to open up in this neck of the woods. Not much else is in this area except we did pass Pho & Bun heading west.

Hours are standard except they’re open every single day!

Plenty of room to park and they even have a lot in the back. We came on a late Monday afternoon so there were only a few tables occupied. The inside is new and quite spacious.

The menu is massive but the southern Vietnamese soup (hu tim mi) and beef stew (bo kho) caught my eye.

They brought this out for my soup (I think). Pickled vegetable.

Fresh salad roll with tofu (V2) ($6.00 for four)

Veggie noodle soup (V9) ($10.50)
DSC01989O’s converted to partial vegetarianism so it was veggie soup for her. She liked the broth and it looked like a satisfactory amount of tofu, vegetables and noodles.

Hu tieu nam vang (H2) ($13.00)
DSC01988Smelled great. You choose either egg noodles or rice noodles. I asked about it and you actually can get a mix, so I tried both. Decent variety of meat (beef, shrimp, squid and ground pork) but a bit more meat and noodles would justify the higher price point. That being said, the broth was solid and had a sweetness similar to what you find in a wonton/egg noodle soup.

What I found interesting was the shape of their bowls. The top part of the bowl forms into a square shape. Odd. Also odd was no Thai basil included…

Good first experience. I’d come back to try their bo koh and other pho options.
