never had viet food. and this menu is fuck huge. whats good?
the various phos with beef should all be pretty good, pho is good. that #1 special bowl looks tasty.
viet vermicelli bowls are pretty good. get one with spring rolls, like #57 on the menu.
soda lemonade is good thing to have with a dinner if you're not having a beer. get a vietnamese coffee for dessert.
seconding #1, it's not too crazy for your first time trying a dish. plus new york so a big bowl of hot soup will be good for cold days.
i also really love chao ga (#135), it's super comfort foody, very simple but delicious. i actually just made some last month and thawed some leftovers for today.
i also always get iced thai tea with condensed milk because i'm a dumb baby and it's like candy
You don't like salty lemonade? WTF is wrong with you? I bet you don't like egg yolk and evaporated milk soda either, you guttersnipe. Pic related (that's one of the best viet places near me).
Oh my god, this place sounds amazing. I'd make it my mission in life to sample everything at least once. Whatever you decide, OP, eat a bite for me! You lucky duck...
Generally Viet joints in NYC are good at best, most are OK. It's easier to find really good Viet in other parts of the country.
That said, I've had good examples in Brooklyn. Usually the beef pho is good (don't be afraid of odd additions like tendon). Numbers 1,3,4,6,8,9,10,11,12 should all be pretty good.
The combination bun dishes are favorites of mine as well - noodles and veggies topped with a spring roll and some other stuff, with a sweet-spicy dipping sauce you can pour over it. 57 or 59 would be my choices in that vein.
30-35 look like safe bets for apps.
If I wanted to make lettuce wraps (messy but delicious) I'd go with 45,46,47,48,51 or 52.
I wouldn't risk the rest of the menu unless I knew where their strengths were. The dishes I listed above are pretty safe bets.
Nice looking bowl of "fur", /ck/?
>mfw: You faggots got trolled hard and collectively took the bait
Oh shut up. OP is in a part of Brooklyn where his only choices are pretty much Chinese, Viet, old school Italian American and maybe some Eastern European. If he's tired of the other options and never had Viet before now is a good time for it.
Take your fear of "foreign" foods back to /pol/.
