My desire to visit southeast Asia has grown so significantly in the past few years that a trip may actually happen... some day. In the meantime I'll just keep eating the best culinary imports countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam have to offer.
Vietnamese Soy Cafe is a great little cash-only spot on the east side. We went at 2pm on a beautiful summer Saturday and sat outside.
The spring rolls were light and fresh. The sauce was average. Vegetable salad doused with hot sauce.Rice noodles with vegetables.Chicken Bahn-Mi which was as good as anything I've had in the San Gabriel Valley.
Topped it off with a Vietnamese iced tea and C-shot (cayenne, lemon and sugar cane).
