You may just past by Huong Tra, because it's in a little mall. However, this restaurant is a little gem. I had a wonderful lunch today at this establishment. The menu is quite extensive (as in most Vietnamese and Thai restaurants) with a variety of poultry, beef, and vegetarian dishes. I had the Bun thit huong, tom nuong, cha gio (charbroiled sliced pork, shrimp and spring roll on rice vermicelli). The pork was sliced and cooked very nicely and the spring roll was cut up into bite-sized pieces. My only regret is that there were approximately 4 medium-sized shrimp in the dish. The ingredients were fresh, particularly the herbs (basil and cilantro). I spiced it up a bit with Vietnamese hot sauce. I had a Vietnamese coffee (ca phe sua nong), which came in the traditional manner (small portion of very strong coffee, emulsified sweet condensed milk). It is swirled together and a carafe of hot water is poured into the mixture. The coffee was excellent.
The only drawback is the seating. It is an extremely popular place, so it is important to get there before the noon rush. However, seat rotation occurs rather quickly, I noticed. Also, there is a take away menu. More than half a dozen people came in to pick up their meals then depart. Also, it might be best to park in the street, because the parking lot can accommodate only a few cars. Overall, it was a very good experience and I look forward to my return visit.
