    Glad you were able to try Phuong Nga Banh Cuon! They are most popular for their banh cuon since they are made fresh. I’ve only tried the #1 special plate before, which has everything, but I could only eat maybe half since it was so filling! It kinda reminded me of the English full breakfast I’ve seen online because it’s mostly meat lol

      Hi L – I’m glad I was able to try it as well. It is quite a meaty way to start your day, haha. It is a TON of food, too. Definitely good for sharing!

  2. This looks like a cool place to try out. I don’t think I’ve tried this dish before. Man, that iced coffee from Cafe Dore looks pretty strong, the way I like it. Usually when we order VN coffee, we ask for less condensed milk.

      Hi CC – It’s a tiny spot with a tiny menu – quite specialized! Ohhh I think you’d like the coffee from Cafe Dore. I saw they had the espresso machine going and the guy at the counter was making more and more new coffees. I definitely need to do more City Heights exploring. There are so many little places that I’ve never tried out.

  3. Usually the smaller the menu, the better it is, in my opinion. Those types of places specialize in certain things and most of the time, make it pretty well. City Heights is full of great food finds.
