Profile

This venue is closed.

Lots of Chinatown's consistently drab-looking Vietnamese places turn out grub that’s equally blah. But this subterranean restaurant, tucked away on tiny, calm Doyers Street, is a fortunate exception. Its 1980s wallpaper and wood paneling and its obscure location may give the place the feeling of a washed-out speakeasy, but there’s plenty of edible temptation within reach. Start with various grilled meats served over tasty noodles for next to nothing. But why stop there? Why not try a salad of chewy pork, plump shrimp, and crunchy jellyfish pepped up with pickled carrots and plenty of fresh mint? And why on earth resist the caramel pork, with its full-bodied, intensely sweet-salty sauce, even if eating it takes you well beyond satiated and dangerously close to stuffed? Before you’re done, your table will be covered with treats grilled sugarcane wrapped in shrimp paste, or irresistibly piggy broth stocked with fishcakes and tender squid and you're left to wonder why all Vietnamese restaurants aren't more like this one, while you valiantly try to digest.

Recommended Dishes

Caramel pork with black pepper, $7.25; assorted seafood, meat, and rice stick soup, $4.95; grilled pork on thin rice noodle, $7.50
