Nam-Viet Pho 79 Restaurant Review: A sister restaurant of one of the area’s oldest Vietnamese eateries, this location looks slightly more upscale than the other, a suburban drop-in place with plenty of neighborhood appeal. You won’t find anything particularly trendy, but you will encounter a complete assortment of the standards, from caramel pork with black pepper to crispy spring rolls, shrimp barbecued on sugar cane, and grilled pork on rice vermicelli. Some dishes, such as the orange beef or chicken and the chicken with cashews, don’t sound particularly traditional, and may be the chef’s fancy. We’ve enjoyed the garden rolls and the refreshing shredded green papaya salad with shrimp, but could spend the whole evening mixing and matching items from the menu.
