There are few places that are destination worthy in that valley for us and this is one of them. We’ve been making up excuses to go up to see family on the weekends just so that we can go and pig out there. byob if you’re chill… Sure there are places that we’ve all known and loved for pho and banh mi in the valley but this one is quite different… total family operation, wonderful people and great food.
They do the standards fairly well (bun, pho, rolls) but they have dishes that we don’t generally find so we’ve just been working through that menu slowly but everything is wonderful. There are things not pictured that are quite popular like fried duck (sorry had to jack from yelp pics, only this one though)
They’re trying to whiten up certain things because of the big influx of white people, they took chilis out of the rice crepe dressing for example, naturally i still asked for them and encouraged them to stop doing that nonsense.
The really sweet 20-something guy who was waiting on us knew we were 1st timers. When we ordered it he told us many people “unfamiliar” with the dish (meaning white folks) don’t care for it, so I assume he was trying to make it more palatable. He knows us now.
