I was in the mood for Vietnamese food for lunch today. My absolute favorite place for Vietnamese, Tan Dinh, is now closed on Sundays. I’ve been seeing this place forever and never tried it, so I figured today was as good a day as any to check them out.
Looks like the sign on the outside of their building took a beating from Hurricane Ida. The first thing I noticed when I walked into the dining room was something utterly shocking. The Saints are playing today, but they had the Green Bay and Cincinnati game on tv! That’s a mortal sin in the New Orleans area. But it hit me that they may be a big fan of former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, who now plays for Cincinnati. That had to be it, so I gave them a pass.
I decided on:
##### the food #####
Everything was very good.
The spring rolls tasted nice and fresh. They put a shot of Sriracha hot sauce in the peanut dipping sauce, which was delicious.
I love the chewy texture of tendon and trip in my pho. This bowl had plenty of both. And the fatty brisket was very tender with a great flavor.
The chargrilled pork in the vermicelli bowl was fantastic.
Very good lunch here today. I recommend the place!
