- Categories: Dining Out
Those of you are familiar with me would also know that I lived in Los Angeles for awhile, which is known to be populated by asian immigrants of many different origins. That’s what I loved about Los Angeles. Finding a good, authentic food of just about any cuisine was very easy.
Anyway, in terms of asian cuisine, I was very well acquainted with Korean food thanks to my college roommates, and Thai, Japanese and Chinese food just because they are that common in LA area, but my knowledge of Vietnamese food is pretty much limited to just phở. So today when I had dinner with a group of 6 friends at a Vietnamese cafe on Seah St, I didn’t quite know what to expect!
Their menu seems pretty common. Lots of rice dishes and a good variety of phở priced at around $8-10. I figured since I’ve tried phở countless times before, I’d go for one of their rice dish instead. I’m not even sure if they are authentic Vietnamese, but here’s what I ordered:
Beef steak with white rice ($9.90). For that kind of price their portion was very generous and the sauce were damn good (it had lots of black pepper so I may be a bit biased), however the steak itself was a bit tough. Thank god I have strong set of teeth! The sunny side up eggs was a nice touch, too bad I don’t like egg yolks so I left that out. Overall, I’m quite satisfied with this meal! :)
