the 3 times I've been there I had to ask for "sambal oelek (aka garlic chili sauce)" to be brought to the table for my vermicelli bun so I could add it to the fish sauce. the 1st time I went & asked, the waitress acted like I was from another planet. I eat at a lot of pho & hole in the wall Vietnamese places & this is usually a staple ON the table. Each time the only way for success of it landing on my table was after the wait staff went and got the owner b/c he was the only one that knew wtf I was talking about. However, each time this took an additional 15-20mins after my food arrived to make it happen. Even though this place is in my neighborhood & I was happy to have it at first, the long waits and inconsistencies (sometimes the bun is good, sometimes it's absolutely terrible) have made this place completely fall off my radar.
