THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Hy-Vong Restaurant Review

: Hy-Vong is located in a dimly lit storefront and with a dozen tables, expect a wait in what feels like an intimate living room dinner party (no reservations and cash only are the policies here). When you snag a seat, order banh cuon (pork rolled in translucent rice sheets) or cha gio (deep-fried rice paper-wrapped egg rolls stuffed with cellophane noodles, pork and mushrooms). Service is slow but when paced becomes part of the charm. Sip a Thai Singha beer with shrimp paste grilled on sugar cane skewers, seared kingfish in mango peppercorn sauce or curry chicken with sweet potato. End the meal with a slow-dripped coffee with sweetened condensed milk and ginger cake and be glad you waited.
