We’ve been for lunch three times now. The inside is modern and bright; depending on where you sit, it can get very sunny. Service was friendly and food always comes out quickly. Make sure to ask if you want your bean sprouts cooked!
The menu is large with appetizers, pho, mi quang/banh canh, vermicelli, clear rice noodles, rice plates, vegetarian and banh mi.
Wish there was more crab meat. Shrimp were good but the BBQ pork tasted like freezer burn.
Spicy beef, Vietnamese ham and pork hock with vermicelli. The broth wasn’t too spicy so you could taste the broth. Interesting that the broth had chili flakes. All the meats were enjoyable, particularly the beef. BBH won’t blow you away but it was serviceable.
We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 12:45pm). No trouble getting seats.
Bun rieu (#38A) ($10.95)
Vermicelli and sour soup, noodles in crab chowder. The broth was light but still had good depth to it. Liked that it came with pork blood, Vietnamese ham, tofu and crab. It was much more satisfying than the one we had at Viet Mama Cafe.
Good crunch to the spring rolls but the filling was bland.
The grilled pork was excellent. We don’t order too many vermicelli bowls but this one was solid.
A good variety of herbs and lettuce to wrap your meat and vermicelli in.
J didn’t love the pork pieces but everything else he said was tasty.
We dropped in on a Wednesday for lunch (around 12:30pm).
Bun cha ca da nang (#30) ($10.95)
Fish cakes, chicken balls and assorted vegetables. Quite a few things inside this bowl including bamboo shoots, taro stem, tomato, cabbage, pickled pepper, dill and even a couple pieces of pineapple. Broth is on the lighter/cleaner side with a subtle underlying sweetness.
Will come back to LMDN. Reasonable prices.
