Bryn Mawr’s Ha Long Bay is one of those rare suburban restaurants in upper-middle class towns that manages to get ethnic cooking right. Foodzings just featured their reasonably authentic Vietnamese cuisine, with an emphasis on variety meats:
It was cold, so I wanted soup, so I ordered bun bo hue, the spicy beef hue style. Bad idea. I’ve had the pho here before. It’s a completely different experience than going to an of the mostly pho places in the city. You know what you’ll get. But here, when you order pho, no matter what kind, you will get funky stuff in it. You can order flank pho, and it’ll have flank, some other meat, and some tripe. You order beef ball pho, and it’ll have beef balls, some other meat, and some tripe. Tripe will inevitably show up in your pho here. So be warned! It also tastes a little funky. Not funky bad, but just not like the other places.
