HIDDEN GEM: My Huong Kitchen

My Huong Kitchen is a Vietnamese restaurant hidden next to a tax services venue off of Eat Street. Though there are many places to get your Vietnamese food cravings, this place stands out for being so quaint and affordable. The place only seats 14 but you can always get food to go. And with a flat-screen TV playing lots of Asian action movies, you won't be bored waiting for your food.

The Egg Roll and Pork Chop Noodle Salad covered in peanuts, carrots, cucumbers, and fresh herbs was a refreshing salad to eat on a hot summer day. You can see the sweet house fish sauce on the side gives it a flavor blast when you pour it all over the salad. This dish was just $8.95-- and the bowl was huge!

The broken rice combo is another great plate to try out. Shown above is the lemon grass pork chop and shredded pork and it was very tasty. Take your spoon and mix everything up and drizzle some house fish sauce on it. It has a sweet and salty flavor but the lemongrass is a nice touch to the protein. Only $7.95, what a deal!

Luckily, we came after the dinner rush so there were some empty tables. The owner was our waitress and she was very attentive.

We shared the Nutella and Cream Crepe between four people-- that's how large it was!-- and it tasted wonderful. The crepe was $5.95 and I almost got another just for myself! The owner was very nice, and even threw in some free desserts as we left. We will definitely head back to this Hidden Gem again soon.
