Vietnamese Garden Colorado Springs

A new favorite! We had such a good lunch yesterday with Rick at the newly opened Vietnamese Garden that we had to get take out this evening! For lunch or dinner, man! The food is in generous portions, fairly priced, and very very fresh (no MSG). Tonight we did appetizers: Cha Gio (fried egg rolls) and the Potato Fritters (yam and carrot). I don't know what's in their homemade sauce, but its good on everything!

At lunch Laura had the Bun Cha Gio Thit Nuong (noodle bowl with chicken) and I had the Bun Bo Hue, a spicy beef/pork soup. I really like the rice noodles used in Vietnamese cooking. LA and I split a jasmine green tea, and for dessert had a coconut pudding. Before yesterday, I don't think we had much experience with Vietnamese food--mainly Thai--and we like it a ton now! Not to mention its only 1 block away!

The location isn't the greatest, being around the corner from Colorado Ave, so there's not much drive by traffic from tourists...its kind of a fast-food corner with Taco Bell, Mc Donalds, Wendy's, and KFC/A&W all providing fast and cheap food. I really hope VG does well...its one of our new favorite local spots. We both highly recommend it, and Rick seemed to really enjoy it too, better than other Asian restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Try it out!
