I-S checked out hot new Vietnamese arrival on the dining scene NamNam Noodle Bar, courtesy of the Les Amis folks and Annam Vietnamese Cuisine’s owner/chef Nam Quoc Nguyen.
“It’s casual and minimal, with plenty of pale wooden tables and stools that can sit about 80 hungry souls, and red lantern fixtures hanging from the ceiling. It’s all about simple Vietnamese fare here, with a particular emphasis on noodles from northern, southern and central Vietnam. Think dry yellow curry duck noodles ($8.90) and a full-flavored flower crab noodle soup ($13.90), with an entire deep-fried soft shell crab, tofu and tomato. The star is the pho (but of course), with chicken ($7.90), a combination of beef balls, beef shank, tendon and tripe ($9.90), and even Wagyu beef ($16.90).”
