A good Vietnamese seems to be notoriously difficult to find in Stuttgart, or maybe I'm just not looking in the right places. However, I seem to have come across a little gem here.
Although the dish I always get is Pho, I branched out the first time and chose a stirfried pork dish with rice and green beans. Very delicious indeed. I got it on the agreement that my friend who got the Chicken Pho would share it with me. Unfortunately for me, he decided to put all the chilli sauce into the broth which made it far too spicy for me and meant I couldn't even enjoy any of the soup. Needless to say, I went home mad.
However, the second time, I was insistent to get my own Beef Pho while again my friend had the Chicken Pho. Mine was delicious. They are not overly generous with the toppings but certainly not stingy either. The herbs and the beansprouts together with the lime, a little chilli sauce and most important the broth was truly a delicious mix. In addition, my beef broth seemed to be a lot tastier than my friend's chicken broth. Either way, the food is well worth regular visits.
I have also tried the summer and spring rolls here - this reaffirmed the idea that only vegetarian spring rolls are tasty. The meat spring rolls are just a little too heavy for my liking. Still very good though.
As for the atmosphere, it is actually nicely tucked away from the main street - twas a little difficult to find the first time. There is a great outdoor seating area and the whole restaurant has been decorated very tastefully. There is often enough people around to give it a lively atmosphere and I always spy them with interesting looking cocktails so they obviously cater to a wide range of drinkers.
So, if you like to try some authentic, light vietnamese food then this is definitely the place for you.
