Went for a meal at Tay Ho a while ago. A restaurant liked by Janelle Bitker. They didn’t have the bun rieu or the Hue dumplings that I was looking for that day during lunch.
Hu tieu dai hai san- Mekong glass noodle with shrimp, calamari and fish balls. Somewhat muted flavors. Need some doctoring up with sauces at the table.
Banh khot. Pretty nice and fragrant.
Banh cuon dac biet- solid.
Forgot what this noodle was. For the kids. Safe noodle choice.
All the dishes were adequate though they didn’t stand out. We didn’t get the chance to order the highlights on the menu. The herbs were a little tired. What else do people like at Tay Ho?
Know your herbs and the herb plate. The plate was one of the better and more varied plates around.
If you drive, don’t park under any of the nearby trees. You’d have noticed an incredible amount of bird poop underneath them. Take that as a hint.
