    Had vegetable spring rolls, Chinese eggplant bahn bao, roasted pork shoulders, and bread pudding. All was just devine! The bread pudding needed a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream though :)

    Mary Nguyen Aregoni and Theresa Nguyen, sisters and owners of the restaurant, grew up in the biz: in Vietnam, their mother owned an open-market grocery that supplied provisions to nearby embassies.

    Very authentic, great food. Keep in mind that there aren't a whole lot of options for those with limited palates!

    Try the excellent pork belly rice bowl - nice, lean cut from Holland. Say they can't get lean pork belly in the Midwest.

    Oaxtail Pho was awesome! Quinoa salad a bit salty and special spring rolls (duck) were tasty.
  • Crain's Chicago Business
    Rice paper-wrapped salad rolls are worth a try — they're bigger than most, plus the shredded tofu in the veggie option is highly seasoned and flavorful. Read more

    For dinner, liked the banh bao, pork belly with rice and pho. Skip the cocktails- not good enough for $12

    I like the "hen house" sandwich. The sandwiches are not as good compare to Ba-le, but this place is it for the southside

    They only serve a small portion of pho for dinner... And dinner is overpriced. I guess lunch is the only way to go here.
