Authentic and delicious Vietnamese food in South Grand area, probably the best Pho in St. Louis. This place is always busy, you have to take some time find street parking too.
Vietnamese Spring Roll (Goi Cuon) and Fried Tofu Cubes – fresh herbs, fresh ingredients, must get Spring Rolls. Tofu were crispy and hot.

Bun Rieu – first time trying Bun Rieu here, not bad … but not my favorite. I will stick with their Beef Pho next time.
Pho Dac Biet – Special Combination Beef Noodle, mom’s favorite noodle soup. You can’t go wrong with this. Yum Yum!!

My must go place everytime I am back.
Sushi here is really medi-core, but its about the only sushi place that opens late on weekends. So not many choices here.
There was 3 of us, we ordered quite a few items. The rolls were smaller than the other places I’ve tried, fish were not the best.
Drunk Fish Sushi
Assorted Rolls – I don’t remember the names … but the tuna were kind of shine and a bit dry.
Sashimi Platter – smaller for its price.
Ama Abi – probably the best of tonight.
I would probably come back happy hour only.
One of the best Taiwanese restaurant I had in St. Louis. There are not that many Asian restaurants in the area, but this is definitely one of my favorite. Service was good too.
Sticky Rice Cube – make with pork blood and sticky rice … trust me, you can’t really taste the pork blood, the sauce is very savory.

Sticky Rice Hot Dog – its more like a Chinese sausage with stick rice … it was okay, not the best I had.

Braised Beef Noodle – very good portion, probably enough for 2 girls. Love the strong and herbal soup base like how traditional Taiwanese noodle soup should be. Beef brisket was tender, noodles was al-dente. Highly recommended!

Braised Pork Rice – a pretty good portion for $5, you can get fill up just eating this. Fatty pork like the traditional way with special sauce. A little too fatty for me, but once a while is okay.

Overall, food was very authentic. I will come back 🙂
One of the busiest restaurant in Chicago Chinatown. Their popular for their bubble tea and smoothie, you literally see everyone holding one of their drink around Chinatown. The menu is huge, but food is so-so, very slappy.
We ordered couple smoothies. Real Fruits – no bad.
Mixed Fruit Smoothies
Tofu Fish Cake – can’t go wrong with fried food. Very hot from fryer.

Eel and Beef Cube over Tomato Rice – the presentation was impressive, served in a little bucket. Eel serving was a bit small, beef was good. Rice was a bit greasy.

Stir fry Fish and Squid – so-so, so much onion!

Malaysian Spicy A-Choy – so salty and small portion!

Overall, no impression about the food. Go get a drink is okay.
Here I am again, Every time I am back in St. Louis I had to go for Brunch at Brasserie by Niche! Check out my previous posts June 2016, Nov 2014 and Jan 2015
Brioche French Toast with Lemon Curd – wonderful brioche, crispy outside, fluffy and soft inside. Loved the lemon curd goes with it, it was tart and creamy, it helps to cut down the oily-ness.

Egg Benedict with potato – you can’t go wrong with anything here, yummy!
Brasserie by Niche – always crowded
