Kim Son Vietnamese Bistro Restaurant Review: Like most comfort foods, Vietnamese soup has unlimited variations. It’s also often a litmus test of a kitchen’s quality. Kim Son passes with flying colors. Pho is rich and flavorful --- and not to be confused with the bun bo hue’s mix of beef and pork in a lemon grass-flavored broth. The large, colorful U. City restaurant is a good place for seafood --- sometimes freshly plucked from tanks at the rear --- as well as crisp egg rolls, spicy vermicelli and hotpots full of flavor. The salad of duck and green papaya is rich and refreshing at the same time, but on the whole, the menu is stronger on main courses than on appetizers. The beer and wine menu is far less exotic; for a splash of verve, check out the tapioca drinks in flavors like taro, avocado, durian and jack fruit.
