Le Do Vietnamese

If you ask 100 Vancouverites where the best bowl of Pho is, I am betting you would get 98 different answers. We have no shortage of awesome Vietnamese food in this city, and I am thankful for that. A meal in soup with noodles? Yes please!

Le Do Vietnamese is one of my favourites which, thankfully, happens to be in the East Village and therefore a stop on my all East Village restaurant tour!

This was not my first visit to Le Do so since this isn't a new restaurant experience, I wanted to try some new items.

I went with a soup I have had at other fine establishments- Beef stew with egg noodle- Hu tieu hoac Mi Bo Kho. No dissappointments with this soup. The broth was spicy and deep. I went with an egg noodle instead of a rice noodle which I enjoyed. Nice big chunks of carrot in the soup. Another fantastic soup.

Since I was in no hurry, I went with a Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk- Ca Phe Sua Nong. I have had a Vietnamese coffee made for me before, Big M was quite into them for a while and made them at home. I will admit that this was my first one and, other than knowing it takes a while to be done, I was a bit baffled by what to do when it arrived at the table.

Thankfully, my waitress was kind and walked me through the process of pouring the coffee. I LOVE a strong coffee and this is really the ideal strong coffee. The condensed milk is quite a treat as it is thick and sweet. My only complaint, and I know that this is my problem, is that I want to drink it so fast and I don't understand how anyone can hold the hot glass. I like a mug.

This was a perfect mid-winter meal. Deliciously spicy and hot soup with a thick, dreamy coffee. Go Le Do!
