Our boys wish is granted, Vietnamese dinner. We debated whether to go to Green Lemongrass, Pho Lan or Thai Son. I voted for Thai Son because we have not been back to this restaurant for a long time.
Ben ordered his favourite Bun Bo Hue which is also Thai Son signature dish. Large is $8.50. Just to see how much prices for eating out has increase; the same dish was $6.50 in 2008.
Arkensen ordered his favourite No.1 house special combination beef rice noodle soup. Large is either $8.15 or $8.50, I think (I did not keep the bill after paying). Back then in 2008, it was $5.95.
The usual bean sprout (blanched) and basil which came with the noodle soup.
Nanzaro ordered a dry noodle with seafood. Large is also $8.50. He won’t share with us as he has big appetite.
I ordered shredded pork and grilled pork chop on broken rice. This is $8.50. This dish is huge. I’m surprised I managed to finish all the grilled pork, with a little help from Ben.
My dish came with the fish sauce and soup (Nanzaro’s dry noodle also came with a soup on the side).
The bill came to $40 with tips. Thai Son only accepts cash.
The restaurant was not as busy as we expected around 6PM on a weekend.
