From what I remember you'd get a small size for the price of a large (one of my friends ended up ordering a second because he was so hungry) but the food hit the spot and still reminded us of home. A husband and wife run the restaurant and they were really friendly (taking our orders themselves, serving our tea -- I don't even remember seeing a waitress working). They also had frogs legs which tasted pretty good considering it was my first time. It seemed like most people who came into the restaurant were regulars they'd be chatting it up with the owners.

The address is 29 Rue Véron
75018 Paris, France
It's about a 5 minute walk from the Moulin Rouge.. when I google-mapped it the name of the restaurant was different (Escale-Montmartre?) but I assume my picture is more recent because I was only there last July.

Damn I miss Europe

Went to Hoi An yesterday with my gf. Our experience was ruined however by a guy sitting in a table next to us who decided it was a good idea to rub his feet with his hands while we ate. Food was good though! Should also mention that it was pretty stuffy in there. Some proper ventilation would go a long way!

haha that sounds so vietnamese, it's funny cause it's so normal if they are wearing slippers.
Yea it was meant to really be a small cafe shop so we don't really have a real kitchen or ventilation but it's been so popular since day one that it's become like a real busy restaurant. what did you order?

I've been to this place. I also stayed in a hostel in Montmartre. So many asians in this area and it's ridiculous the prices they're charging for food court type asian food.

Will probably roll through Berlin sometime. Where's the place?
The Vietnamese center is called Dong Xuan Center: Herzbergstraße 128
10365 Berlin, Deutschland

There are a couple of restaurants there but my favorite is the one accross from the supermarket in Halle 2(Building 2). If you get lost, just follow the asians.

Tried out Hoi An Cafe with my mother, cousin and uncle today.

Once we walked in my mother recognized one of the waitresses from an old restaurant on Kingsway/Fraser she used to love. She wanted to order the old "11" from the old menu but I guess y'all don't have the same dish anymore. Anyways I tried the bun bo hue and it was great! Definitely coming back again.
