Dong Phuong Restaurant Review

: New Orleanians will take a long drive to get to Dong Phuong for authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Families often gather around the tables to enjoy the hearty, moderately priced meals. The restaurant is known for its seafood egg rolls; five-spice duck noodle soup; po' boy-like barbecue pork crispy bun; jumbo shrimp; and skewers holding strips of thin-sliced beef to be dipped into a plum-type sauce with an enticing perfume and a peppery edge. The attached bakery operation supplies many local Asian markets with bread as well as with both sweet and savory pastries; a single dollar buys three crusty Vietnamese-style baguettes still warm from the oven. Colorful paper lanterns and a big, gurgling fish tank enliven the d├ęcor, making a visit to the restaurant worthwhile just for its visual delights. No alcohol.
