This is so far the one and only good Asian restaurant in Toms River, Manchester, Brick, Point Pleasant, in Ocean County New Jersey. I personally like this place better than the sushi place I visited. At this point, I had already given up in looking for more Asian restaurants since I have no desire in driving through the rest of the county far far away from my hotel. I also don't have the will or the patience to drive to New York City or Philadelphia just for Asian food. I am very thankful that there is this one Vietnamese restaurant in the area for me to go back again and again to eat. I just hope that this restaurant can make it here in this area, because I have been here long enough to observe that the demographics in this area have very different standards and taste about food.
As long as I am here in this area, I want to support this only one place that serves decent Asian food. Besides, I really enjoy the Stew Beef Noodle Soup ($9.45) here. The beef is really tasty and the broth is addictively delicious. The noodle on the menu is supposed to be egg noodle. But I always substitute with rice noodle because rice noodle is more like the Pho thing and I am here for the Pho. This noodle soup reminds me of my home town Los Angeles. I am always homesick for California whenever I am working here in this area and this familiar noodle soup reminds me of the comfort food I often had in California.
