  1. I’d been wanting to go here….so this was a nice preview! I’m not averse to going to the ‘hood. Sometimes those are the best places to go! They are usually devoid of urban hipsters which is always a plus!

  2. Yes, cheaper but still tasty. And best of all, the flavors are not dumbed down for “American” tastes.

  3. I love that place! It’s a Vietnamese-Chinese noodle place, so you get the best of both worlds. I highly recommend the fried rice and the fried noodles there, along with the noodle soups. They also have pretty good rice+protein plates for cheap. I love that it’s so hole in the wall and it’s a good way for me to get rid of homesickness for SGV food. If you’re there on a weekday, there’s a bakery across the street that makes some good strawberry cake and egg tarts. It’s just called “Chinese Bakery.”
