    #116 wasn't bad but could've been done better. Vietnamese Coffee is always worth it. Spring rolls missing some ingredient. Will come back and try out more food.

    A Dong dishes are made with fresh ingredients grown right outside the restaurant, and the menu (featuring over 100 dishes) hasn't changed since the restaurant opened. The owner is also the head chef.

    If the pho is too little for you, all you have to do is ask for a bigger bowl. It doesn't tell you in the menu.
