Hai Phong in Crosstown

July 31, 2014

#50 Vietnamese chicken curry w rice - 2

J's comment > not bad; curry on the thin side, but I think that's the style; slightly spicy but full of lemongrass flavor; works beautifully w the rice which on its own is a tad hard, but w the curry was just fab; decent portion of chicken, all dark meat so lots of bones too, but I'd prefer it like this than w white meat

#28 Grilled lemongrass chicken in rice noodle soup - 2

J's comment > not bad; chicken very juicy and flavorful; rice noodles just the slightest bit bouncy, al dente almost, but I prefer the texture this way; soup on the mild side; hard to decide between dunking the chicken in the soup and eating same on its own

#5 Shrimp and pork salad roll - 2

J's comment > your avg roll, lots of vermicelli, could definitely use more shrimp and / or pork

#59 Jackfruit milkshake - 2

J's comment > decent jackfruit flavor; not exactly creamy, thankfully not a lot of ice either, kinda like the perfect balance between a milkshake and a slushee more than an actual milkshake
