This little restaurant fronts the river and serves all the local specialties including the following: cao lau (a combination of white and yellow noodles combined with bean sprouts, croutons, greens, pork and other fixings depending on the chef, topped with crispy rice paper); banh xeo (crispy pancake with herbs ) and the white rose (steamed shrimp dumpling). The best part of this place was the decor – exposed brick with woven flax ceiling and a quirky assortment of bric-a-brac. The most interesting moment – a massive fight between female voices (the cooks?) broke out which everyone could clearly hear in the restaurant and which the waitstaff valiantly tried to ignore. In fact, a family just walking in just turned around and left as soon as the shouts broke out. The fight eventually stopped and our food came out which was very average – maybe because of the fight? Again, we fell prey to the Lonely Planet Picks.
