Crispy, crunchy, fresh, and hot....that's how they should taste and that's what they serve here. None of that soggy, pale, stuffed-with-unidentifiable-ingredients that other Asian restaurants serve. They topped off my Vermicelli noodle bowl so beautifully, and complimented the grilled pork skewers. Disappointed in the nuoc mam sauce though, as I found it a bit bland. The other fantastic part of the meal was my husband's Vietnamese iced coffee. Many places bring it to the table with the coffee already stirred up in a glass of ice, already diluted when it arrives at the table. This place serves it the authentic way...a stainless steel pot of coffee grounds dripping into the ceramic coffee cup below, piping hot and fragrant. A chilled glass of ice waits by it's side...when you are ready, you pour the coffee over the ice yourself, and the lovely condensed milk mixes in with the coffee, all swirly and beautiful over the frozen ice...and you get to drink it before it becomes diluted. So, so yummy!! I can't tolerate the caffeine level, but I did try a spoonful and the flavor was divine. We enjoyed the chicken wing appetizers with chili and green onion...they were hot, crunchy, not greasy, though the wings themselves were a little "fatty". Atmosphere is bright, clean, and service was quick. Diner demographics were approximately 50% Asian, 50% non-Asian. Plenty of parking, easy to find, right off Convoy. Definitely deserves a return visit.
