Taken from yelp in June.
If you’re going for family style this is the page on the menu to order. You can see they don’t expect non Vietnamese to order from this menu at all since they didn’t bother to translate it but translated the rest of the menu.
The other pages have all the familiar items like most vietnamese restaurants which ironically is translated.
3 sections—man (savory/salty) , xao (stirfry/vegetable), canh (soup). For complete family style meal you need to order 1 from each section.
My Rec below are not based on what I’ve had there, but Based on how fundamental these dishes are to homestyle viet food. It’s like trying a new dim sum spot and ordering the shui mai and hargow.
The ones I would go with are ca kho to (caramelized catfish ) thit rim Tom (braised pork and shrimp). ask for side of dua chua, pickled mustard greens—it’ll be good complement to the above. dau hu nhi thit (braised fried tofu stuffed with pork sausage in tomato broth) is another good choice.
From the xao section: rau muong xao toi( stir fried morning glory with garlic). I don’t have strong feelings on the rest, but there’s stir fried luffa squash, bitter melon with egg, eggplant…
Canh section, typically you choose one and it’ll be sour soup ,canh chua —catfish or shrimp. Both traditional but moreso catfish. Ask for separate plate of fish sauce and chiles—you typically remove the filets from the soup and let it soak and eat the fish separately so everyone can share.
But if your group is big enough you can get another. They are all very traditional and good in a homey way. Khoai mo purple yam soup is an interesting one texture wise if you like viscous. Viets love viscous stuff like malabar spinach and okra.
Hope that helps and if you need anything else translated.
