BROOKLYN: Nha Toi

Posted in brooklyn, food, new york, restaurants by sue on November 14, 2010

This tiny hole in the wall spot is a bit intimidating at first. There aren’t that many seats here and they are usually taken so you’re pretty lucky if you get one. The menu is up in front on a clipboard on the wall and you order there as well. The pho is alright; not terrible, but not amazing. The soup wasn’t like what I had expected, but the brisket blew me away with its tenderness. The pulled pork banh mi was flavorful but lacked the carrots, radish, and cilantro I normally associate with Vietnamese sandwiches. The thing you have to get if you decide to try Nha Toi is the shrimp and bacon summer roll– why didn’t anyone think of that before? It’s probably the best summer roll I have ever had. They even give you three sauces for it. Yum.
