Kids love Vietnamese food, especially the delicate angel-hair noodle dishes and the grilled pork chops on the bone. There's no décor to speak of here, except for the fake tropical plants and flowers, but the restaurant offers a quick meal of intricately seasoned dishes including steamed vegetable dumplings and summer rolls filled with shrimp, sprouts, and mint. Popular noodle dishes, such as the stir fried Bun Xao with shredded vegetables and your choice of meat are big enough for two. La Sa Tom, the addictive curry shrimp soup with coconut milk, comes in small and large sizes and is packed with plump shrimp. You can also share, or hoard for yourself, a host of authentic meat, seafood, and vegetarian main plates.
