Eating Vietnamese at Ben Thanh

Due to many recommendations by our friends on Facebook, I traveled alllllll the way down Central Avenue to visit Ben Thanh for some Vietnamese fare this weekend.

Ben Thanh proves to be another jewel of a restaurant among the many located on Central. It joins the ranks of Dim Sum, La Unica, Las Delicias, and Papusa Heat.

The service was quick and the food came out fast. Everything we tried tasted fresh and flavorful. Thanks, Facebook friends for recommending this place!

Here is what we ordered:

Bi Cuon (Garden Delight Roll) - Shredded pork seasoned with garlic, roasted rice, lettuce, mint, and bean sprouts rolled in rice paper, served with sweet and sour garlic sauce.
