Event Description: NOT A MONDAY BUT A TUESDAY NIGHT DINNER!!!
Vietnam Palace Restaurant
222 N. 11th St., Philadelphia, PA
Located across from the Convention Center
We are trying something new this time-this dinner is taking place on a Tuesday. We have decided to try a few Tuesdays here and there for special reasons, such as many restaurants not being open on Mondays. The reason for this one being on a Tuesday is also because we are hoping Lawrence and Tee will be able join us and advise us as we try some new dishes.
There are two restaurants across the street from each other, one is the Vietnam Palace and the other Vietnam. REMEMBER our reservation is at the Vietnam Palace. (Vietnam does not take reservations.)
Below are two reviews on the Vietnam Palace:
Stylish setting for traditional Vietnamese fare.
Vietnam Palace's appearance is that of a run-of the mill fluorescent-lit restaurant. But the staff is highly accommodating and, once you're settled, the average setting begins to fade from your thinking. Meat lovers should consider sharing the "Bo 7 Mon," seven courses of beefy goodness. The vermicelli combo breaks out of the traditional bowl onto a platter of noodles and grilled meat and fish. Salt-baked squid is almost as light as tempura.
?I've been coming to Vietnam Palace once a week for four years now. I've seen it transition from a fairly shady-looking place to a lovely, classy restaurant. One thing hasn't changed with the updated decor: the quality of the food. Ever since the first time I've set food in this place, the service has been impeccable and friendly (keep in mind it -does- get busy on weekend evenings; the staff still do their best to get the meal on the table within 15 minutes), not to mention fast. The food is authentic, home-style Vietnamese; try the deluxe Pho, the bo luc lac, the salt-battered seafood, the fresh beef marinated in lime juice, and the roast pork with wonton soup.
What else is amazing, aside from the consistently great service and food? The prices. Most entrees are around $10--incredible considering how tasty, fresh, and large the portions are--and appetizers, salads, and desserts are all within a $5 range. Drinks from the bar are pricier, but stick with the tea; it won't detract from the authentic dining experience.?
