Cong Ly Restaurant Review

: This salt-of-the-earth Vietnamese eatery has a half dozen or so tables scattered throughout its dining room. Some are pushed up against the wall making for an odd seating arrangement, and they are usually full and often shared with strangers. Meanwhile, the authentic cuisine might scare away the novice but will certainly appeal to extreme foodie sensibilities. Bun bo Hue, a rich soup hailing from the central Vietnamese town of Hue, bobs with pigs’ feet. Pho can also come with ingredients that challenge unadventurous eaters, but it remains ever-popular. For something more tame, try the grilled pork chop atop broken rice or the shrimp spring rolls.
