  1. Another hole in the wall serving just rice dishes, vermicelli and bun bo hue. I ordered some spring rolls and bun bo hue. I actually like the bun bo hue, even though it wasn't the least bit spicy (which I believe they are supposed to be). Nice beefy broth, beef shank, tendon, fish cake, and a side bowl of pig trotter. I tried the broth that was served with the trotter, it was even richer than the noodle soup. In the past, I would've happily gnawed on the trotter but now I try not to ingest too much fat. The man who ran the front of the house spoke English and he apologized about the credit card machine not working, so I had to pay cash. Most others were eating the rice dishes.
  2. Ngoc Anh is a sit-down/carry out operation that's big compared to similar operations. The menu is limited - pho, grilled meat on vermicelli, and a few other noodle soups. I don't know how the carry out pricing works at any of these joints (not sure if it's by weight, or whatever they feel like charging); I just point to what I want and they bring it over. Today I got a small braised fish (braised with pineapple chunks) - had a mackerel-like fishiness that's mostly masked by the slightly sweet and slightly spicy sauce. Since it had been sitting on the steam table - the meat was a little tough. I also got some veggies - bamboo shoots, squash, carrots, broccoli, and tofu - all were visibly overcooked. The briefly nuked the fish and veggies for me. Lastly, I ordered a bowl of pho with meat balls. The pho came with lots of cilantro and scallions - the broth had a rich herbal flavor which I enjoyed. There was one lady who spoke English. The pho was $8 and the bill was $14, so the fish and veggies were $6. I paid cash.
  3. This is another hole in the wall in the Saigon West portion of Eden Center. It's got a few tables and a steam table of food for carry-out purposes. Their special is Com Tam, described as: I ordered the #1, which came with grilled pork, shredded pork mixed with shredded pork skin, fried egg, Chinese sausage, and some type of paste (maybe shrimp, could be fish, who knows) in solid form. It didn't really even sound appetizing to me but I tried it anyway. I neither liked it nor disliked it. The grilled pork was cooked well done, and not very sweet (which seems more common at other Vietnamese joints). The shredded pork/skin was unique, texture-wise, but not very flavorful. I don't really like Chinese sausage - too sweet. And the mystery paste was nothing special. The order also came with a bowl of peppery broth. I did get some fried fish (2 fish - maybe about 4 or 5 inches each without head) and stewed bamboo shoots. The fish was nicely fried but a bit salty. The bamboo shoots were braised with cured pork, so pretty tasty. $12 with tax - I didn't bother asking if they took credit card as English was not spoken there.
