    Bummed that Fischman's closed for a second and likely final time. Always like that place. Reminds me I need to get up that way to eat at Community though. Always had good experiences there.

    You think we are just going to forget your white washing of this? You’ve truly shown your true colors.

    If you're referring to the recent news about Tank's owners, the moderators decided to remove a series of posts that were very quickly veering toward political discussion, which does not comply with our Posting Guidelines, and which has always been off limits here. There was no effort made to whitewash but as you know (you've been around here a long time), we don't want conversation of that nature taking place in this space. And please, let's all do our best to keep it that way.

    Thanks, for your understanding.

    Does anyone have recommendations of other places for good Vietnamese food in the Argyle/Broadway area, for those who don't want to go to Tank Noodle?

    has consistently good reviews. I've only eaten there 2-3 times, but the food lived up to the talk. [Last reviews were a few years ago, so eat at your own risk. Fresher reviews welcome.]

    Were they your favorite place in the area before this news? That would be a crappy situation, and no faulting you at all for feeling the need to change. Cafe Hoang for Bun Bo Hue and Nha Hang have been good for me, among others.

    It's been some time since I've been to Cafe Hoang, but their goi ga (chicken salad and item number 9 on the menu) and do it yourself spring roll wrap with beef (item 54) have been excellent every time I've ordered them.

    At Hai Yen, I really like the 9 piece Bo La Lot a lot (sorry, couldn't help that). I'm sure there are some other good things there but it's been ages since I've eaten there.

    Nha Hang has our 'go-to' for Vietnamese since dansh, Laikom, Turkob, and others wrote about it on this site. We have done take out from them during the pandemic (probably most recently summer or early fall) and it was excellent and well-packaged for the trip home. They seem to have been open inconsistently during the pandemic. We've called a few times and haven't gotten an answer. I drove by yesterday mid-morning while running an errand near by and they were closed, despite the fact that their posted hours are 8:30 am to 10 pm. There was a sign in the window written in Vietnamese with the exception of 'part-time' so they seem to be open (and maybe looking for part-time workers) but I would call before you go. Hai Yen, across the street, was open.
