It is what it is

I needed a quick lunch while running some errands one day and amongst all the options I had, I craved Vietnamese food. Thinking this can't be much different than Vina's (I love Vina's), I gave them a try.

I ordered a stewed chicken dish of some sort from their specials sign. The sign was really confusing, it said something like '2 items from the hot foods and rice/vermicelli combo" and then in small print, "spring roll only 1". To this day, I still don't get what the sign meant.

I pointed to the sign and said that I'll have the special with spring roll and the (and I pointed to the chicken). She gave me the chicken and the rice. I asked for the spring roll and she huffed under her breath and asked rudely, "you want spring roll?" I said, "yes please".
She proceeded to ring me through so I assumed she would give me the spring roll afterwards. No such luck. I asked again if I could get a spring roll. She rolled her eyes, and asked, "Spring roll??" She then charged me an extra $2. Her english wasn't good, so I assumed that she didn't charge me yet for the roll. I didn't want to argue so I paid and sat down to eat and that was that.

The spring roll was dry, over-fried and left under the heat lamp too long. It was super chewy and not crisp, and was filled with what looked and tasted like all carrots and a tiny bit of pork. Definitely not worth the $2. The stewed chicken was super greasy also. I paid over $8 for the whole meal - not a deal at all.

The lady serving me was pretty rude with no reason to be.

I Had my standard roll dip( vegetarian) with rice vermicelli and salad. It was cooked fresh and was much superior to Vina. Very good and large fresh roll. There was a line up full of regulars. That pretty much says it all. Nice staff and good condiments. Nice to support a non chain place.
