For me, when I look at a place, if it looks a little dingy, seems to have been around for awhile, and people are going in and out, something tells me the money didn't go into the renovations, and it's all about the product, hence me and my partner, full already from our meal, ventured in. This place is in the middle of an older plaza, one green door, in hiding all the Vietnamese goodness once you enter. Did I say this place is small, sometimes you will see people eating outside the shop, there are no tables here, no stools, no window sill with a little area to place some food you are about to buy, just know when you go in, you will be buying food. There is a kitchen in here, cooking up all the food you are going to want to buy, the stuff is under heat lamps, but from the times I have been there, they aren't under them for long, as people come in and pick up stuff to take out and devour somewhere else. On the front counter, some prepackaged foods, from rice rolls, to sticky rice wraps with banana, and meats. Some things looked very colorful, but everything in here just looks right, if you don't understand Vietnamese, it maybe hard to understand what is in some of the food in here as the people who run this joint mainly speak their mother tongue but it did not deter me and my partner from leaving with bags of food on both occassions we were here. On the other side of the store there are a bunch of fridges, filled with cool things like pre-made mixed drinks, some with jellies, some with flowers, and other herbs. Other things that I noticed were in-store made spring rolls in zip-lock freezer bags, Vietnamese meats (or ham) in a roll. Dumplings and other things I couldn't name, had no label, but I would still drop money to buy cause you know that it would be good. From reading some of the other reviews here, the Banh Mi seems really good, haven't got a chance to eat this, but when I return, this will definitely be a stop. On a side note, it was good to buy all the food that we did going back, as the border line-up was long, and we ended up eating a bit of our eats. The wait is less bearable when you have good food you can already eat! <p>It was probably luck, or fate to walk in here, already full from an early breakfast across the street, and construction on Jackson Street, steered us here, as my car was located in another plaza.
