The Food Detective

I think it means "early morning."

How many banh xeo is in an order? I usually eat 2-3 at home and I wrap it in rice papers.


too bad about the food there


Nice strategy with the restroom! I thought you were going to say that you did that so you could try to get a glimpse into the kitchen!


Nice. I've wanted to try this place since it opened. And I've never had banh xeo. Might be in order soon.


Hmm, you know I enjoyed this place and was thinking it may replace Pho Cow Cali for me since it's much newer and cleaner. But then I had Cow Cali a few days later, and enjoyed the broth better at Cow Cali and I had a lot more tripe and meat in my bowl at Cow. So now I'm not sure how I feel about this spot.


Hi TFD - Two or three!!! I've never been to a place that serves more than one per order!

Hi Kat - It's not bad.....

Hi Alyssa - Well, if the door to the kitchen are open, I may just peek in as well!

Hi Jan - I think you'll like the Banh Xeo.....

Hi Kirbie - Not even close to PCC or Lucky with regards to Pho.


Growing pains? Maybe they'll get better.


Hi Pheth - Maybe they will.......


Dang $7, makes you holler. When my bowl of pho is that expensive, is when I use ox tail and fillet mignon.


Hi Bill - Yep, prices keep on rising.....


I tried the pho a couple of times too and found that there were too many noodles. So I'll probably avoid it from now on. I tried the Bun Bo Hue just now and although it was a bit on the mild side, it was yummy and hot enough to cook the goodies and remain hot afterwards. Needless to say I wolfed the whole thing down.

Oh, and yes, I REALLY enjoyed the Banh Xeo the last couple of times I had it.

Up next, either Bun Rieu or the Bo Kho.


Hi Jan - That's interesting...the Bun Bo Hue, huh? I'll have to check it out.
