My friend took my out for a belated birthday dinner last week and we went to Nong La on Sawtelle! I’ve always wanted to try it and I was really really happy I did! =)
We ordered Spring Rolls, Pho and Pork Banh Mi.
The Spring Rolls were good~ the norm.
Pho was good! It was a unique twist to what I’m used to. The broth was clean, the noodles were thicker and made of flour. I’m not sure I’m 100% sold on them (compared to rice noodles), but I liked the new version.
Pork Banh Mi + egg (by the suggestion of the waitress). The Banh Mi was good~ but the egg…didn’t add much to the sandwich. I didn’t notice a huge bonus to having it in there. The bread was great, but I wished there was a little more meat. *shrug *
I think I have to go here one more time before I make a full decision on Nong La. But so far~ my review is good. 3.5/5 stars.
