If I lived on the east side I’d eat better. I don’t mean I’d eat healthier, I mean better. Like dim sum, pho and tamales. I’d probably eat fewer vegetables. Maybe it’s better for my health that I live where I do. It’s not just authentic ethnic food that I’m geographically devoid of, but it’s flavorful Americanized versions of said food. 9021Pho isn’t cutting it. Neither are Absolutely Phobulous or Street. I haven’t tried Paddy Rice so maybe there’s still hope…
I like Good Girl Dinette. I would eat at Green Zone and Viet Noodle more often if I lived closer to them.
Good Girl Dinette is a bright, comfortable restaurant serving clean, Americanized Vietnamese food. The spring rolls are simple and fresh.
House made orange soda is always a draw. Not as sweet as it’s canned counterpart, and twice as refreshing.
The vegetarian noodle bowl with tofu, rice noodles, red leaf lettuce, pickled daikon/carrots, bean sprouts, basil, and toasted peanuts/shallots is a satisfying, crisp dish.
The banh mi are pretty big and packed with flavor. They may not be the most authentic but they certainly aren’t watered down.
There’s a neo-Vietnamese food marathon on the agenda, so stay tuned for Paddy Rice, Red Medicine and more…
