Nhà Hàng Xe Lửa, Chinatown NYC

I love chanh muối (salty lemonade) and order it almost everytime we're in a Vietnamese restaurant. We tried a new place today for lunch, Nhà Hàng Xe Lửa on Mulberry Street right below Canal. I think this might be our new Vietnamese spot. There was something about all the dishes we had that was a little different from your usual Chinatown/ Vietnamese style restaurant. Beats Nha Trang any day. The phở broth was subtle and not overly heavy, the thit tai sliced paper thin. The bún thịt heo nướng was delicious, I like how they placed the lettuce on top so it didn't get too soggy. The only disappointment was the bún chả giò, we've had better elsewhere. All in all, definitely worth trying.
