What really caught my attention was I can smell and see all the cooked food laid out like food stands you find in Asian markets. I was there to check it out but left with bags of food. Everything looks insanely authentic and delicious. When you walk through the door on your left you will see rows of hot food sitting in metal hot holding units under bright yellow lights highlighting the vibrant colors of assorted cooked meats and fish. In front of the glass case you will find prepackaged cooked food such as savory rice rolls, rice in bright orange color, deep fried fish cakes, green papaya salad, and many more mysterious pastries which I've never seen but all look irresistible. More prepackaged food are laid on the table right adjacent to the food I just described but this time they are in big squares and rolls, all wrapped up in some sort of leaf. I couldn't figure out what they were as they were all written in Vietnamese. A female staff member was kind enough to tell me they are sticky rice, with green bean crumbs and minced pork. The freezers are worth checking out. Homemade spring rolls waiting to be taken home and fried. You can tell they are homemade because they are packaged in zip-lock bags. Oh how I want to take you home and fry you in hot oil. Sorry, diverted. There were frozen coconut rice cakes (I think). I wish they would come with cooking instructions. I left with a rice roll, a savory sticky rice with shaved chicken bits and fried shallots, and a beverage containing seaweed strands, dragon eye fruit, dry red dates, and white fungus. The former two were the best I've ever had. The deli places in Vancouver just couldn't keep up with the authenticity of what this place has to offer. I would like to visit Vietnam one day, but for now, 2 hours of driving would do if that's what it takes. The beverage was too sweet for my taste but quite refreshing. And please note there are no tables or chairs. It's literally you grab and get out. Regardless, this is one of my MUST HIT shops in Seattle. <p>Thanks to construction, I was forced to make a detour that let me to passing this place.
