If you’ve been to the original Vietnam Restaurant in Chinatown, then you already know it has some great Vietnamese food and a large menu of Polynesian cocktails that are way stronger than they taste. Vietnam Cafe in University City has pretty much the same food and drink situation, but it’s larger than the Chinatown location, and there’s always a table open - even if you show up with your entire competitive stretching team.
