Hanoi – Value Eats – Sticky Rice Bowls

Missing in Action – Kraft Dinner Egg Noodles

Review – Vina Vietnamese – West Van

Review – Pallet Coffee Roasters – East Van

| Image Credit – Urban Spoon | Something I avoid is a packed eatery. Crowded restaurants seem more trouble than their worth for me: Congee Noodle House on Broadway, Sentouka Ramen on Robson, and Rangoli on West 11th (Is Vij`s any better?) to name a few.
