I just love living near Kapitolyo, one of the hole-in-the-wall restaurants hotspots. One of my favorites, aVietnamese restaurant named Вà Nôi’s, is there too!

I still remember the first time I dined in Вà Nôi’s. It was way back in 2011 when it was still in Makati. I was with my Couchsurfing friends and we ordered a handful of dishes for sharing. One of the dishes I loved was the Bo Luc Lac, an oh-so-tender stir-fried beef. It was a bit pricey though for the serving.

This time around, I went with two of my college friends and we ordered Pho Bo (PHP260), Pho Ga (PHP230), Cha Gio (PHP195), Cha Thia Xao Dao Hao (PHP115), Ca Kho To (PHP250), and a glass of iced Vietnamese coffee (PHP110).

Service was very quick. First served was my coffee on a dripper. It reminded me of Highland’s coffee.

Next served was the two bowls of Pho. We had to return the toppings plate though as one of the limes has a worm on it. Well at least they serve organic food.

The pho were served warm and were really delightful. Slurping the clear soup and munching on the noodles sure calmed our rallying tummies. (And yes, I skipped using the lime.)

My Pho Ga (chicken noodle soup) tasted really good as is that I do not need anything else for extra flavoring. I just added a bit of bean sprouts for extra texture.

The Cha Gio (crispy spring rolls) was pretty good as well. The shape wasn’t as fat as how other restaurants serve it. Every bite was savory and not very oily as well.

The Cai Thia Xao Dao Hao (or simply sautéed bok choy in oyster sauce) was crunchy and undeniably fresh. I enjoyed it a lot. I think I grabbed most of the garlic.

It’s another story though for the Ca Kho To (deep fried catfish in caramel sauce). I find it overly savory. As a person who prefers less flavorful dishes, the taste of this dish was too strong for my palate. It had a bit too much fish bones too which I dislike.

Overall though, it was still a great dinner.

After school, with nothing to do and pretty much time in our hands, my friend and I decided to go on a Kapitolyo food trip before we went home.

Originally, we were supposed to eat at Silantro but there aren't any seats inside. It was such a hot day, we couldn't stand the thought of eating outside. Maybe we'll try it next time.

My friend suggested we try Ba Noi and we got a beef baguette sandwich and beef something noodles for sharing. Their baguettes are absolutely delicious! To think it's freshly made. They have the perfect crunch. However, the beef inside was a little bit to bland for my taste. I liked the combination of different veggies and seasonings on the sandwich but when it comes down to the actual beef, it's under seasoned. The noodles were really good tho. I think I put a little too much of the 'sauce' that it became too salty......hmm

The place is quaint and it looks a bit rustic. Probably the perfect place to chill with your "amigas" HAHA

place was small, parking 128542 but the food for my merienda was GREAT!! Had Goi Cuon (fresh lumpia with shrimp and vermicelli in rice paper rolled into 6 bitesize pieces) the peanut sauce that came with it was the best specially when you mixed it with the sambal sauce (sweet hot sauce), aside from that, i also had the chix barbecue sandwich which was soo filling!! drinks was their most popular fresh sugarcane juice!!

This branch is now Ca Phe by Ba Noi's. I have to try their banhmi and the beef tenderloin was awesomely generous in size, baguette was super crispy you'll know it's freshly baked! Their Pho Bo remains very good as before. A resto that lets you not miss authentic Vietnamese food coz its right here.

Bo luc lac. That's all you need to order to fall in love with the Vietnamese cuisine. It's like our salpicao with crisp leaves plus a salt, pepper, and lemon juice "sauce/dip". So good! You'll keep coming back! Also got the fresh spring rolls. Super yummy and the peanut sauce wasn't cloyingly sweet as well. Pho was bland but everything in it was fresh!

It was just OK, I mean if you just want a Pho quick fix. I guess I just got used to Pho Hoa's soup broth. However, Pho Hoa has changed as well unlike before.

Anyway, their Beef Pho soup broth lacked depthness of flavor, it tasted "flat" (if you know what I mean). I also didnt like the beansprouts that went with the Pho, it was a different variety (local, maybe?) and it was a bit "matigas" unlike the longer ones with just the right crispiness. The basil leaves were also
"tipid".

I liked their Fresh Spring Rolls and the peanut dipping sauce.

Service is fast and friendly. 128077

As with the rest of the Kapitolyo restos, parking is a problem. 128078

Had our group dinner here. I personally chose Bun Cha Gio Thit Nuong - as seen in the picture. Btw, my first and second visit happened just this day! Lunch and Dinner. 128521128521128521

Food
Very filling. It's a combination of meat, vegetables and rice noodles. They've got awesome Nuoc Cham! It's a dipping sauce that you need to pour over your meal. But take extra care, it's a bit salty.

Also tried their Pork Riblets - it' was okay too.

Service
Fair. But one crew misheard our order. We became too nice not to complain because we're already hungry hehe.

Cleanliness
Fair. But my dipping sauce had piece of hair! In fairness, they replaced it quickly! I just hope they'd really changed it hehe.

Price
Not bad. 128077128077128077

Had their bestselling beef banh mi and deep fried spring rolls. Both were great, I particularly enjoyed the vinegar-like sauce served with the spring rolls. I say vinegar-like cause it was a lot sweeter than our Pinoy version and has less of a bite to it. The baguette used for the banh mi was fantastic. It was crisp and fresh and as Chef Colette in Ratatouille said you can tell if bread is good by the sound it makes .. and boy did their bread make a "symphony of crackles". My only concern was that the couches didn't seem too clean and felt *oily* to the touch (yikes). But aside from that the staff were knowledgable and friendly, even their guard outside was very nice. Will come back to try their other items for sure! 9786

Definitely (still) the best Viet joint in the east side of the metro for me. From the ambiance, food selection, and authenticity of their dishes, everything screams HOOOOO CHI MIN!

My all time favorites, and staple orders, are the Cha Gio (fried pork and vermicelli roll with fresh veggies for wrapping) and the sautéed water chestnut leaves with garlic. You can never ever go wrong with those 2 dishes.

Definitely a must try if you're into this type of cuisine 128077

Tried their branch in UP town center last month. The food was great however I can't help but compare it with Bawaii. I still think that they're more authentic and tasty not to mention the homey ambiance in Tagaytay. Their version of chicken curry is far better than banoi's. But I love how banoi's serve their viet milk coffee 128516

The BFF (Best Friend Forever) and I had our late Sunday lunch here. It is apparently a popular weekend foodie destination for families in the Kapitolyo neighborhood.

I ordered the Pho Ga or chicken rice noodle soup (PhP230.00, see picture), while my BFF chose the Fresh Spring Rolls (PhP195.00) and requested that the pork in its original recipe be omitted. We also had a glass of Sugarcane Juice with Orange (PhP120.00) each.

The Pho Ga was served at a comfortably hot temperature. It wasn't too salty, and made me feel full early (which was a surprise, considering that I didn't take dinner the night before and breakfast the morning after!). While the serving was hearty enough for two people, I wish that it had the same oomph as Pho Hoa's take on this classic Vietnamese dish.

My BFF enjoined me to try her order of Fresh Spring Rolls, which we both thought were really good. The peanut sauce condiment that came along with it, however, could be improved just a little bit more.

We also liked our Sugarcane Juice with Orange. The slight sourness of the orange was enough to make the juice more palatable for customers who don't like their drinks too sweet. I think that its Lime-flavored version would be just as refreshing, if not better.

Service was also fast and efficient, and the establishment's crew was pleasant.

Treated a friend here before proceeding to the Mountaineers' Night in nearby For The Road. We have both been to Vietnam and it was the first country we went to so medyo may sentimental value siya 9786

Ordered fresh spring rolls, pho bo (beef, one bowl for each of us), and tofu with pineapple (forgot what it's really called). We loved everything! It brought back memories of Hanoi.

The servers were also attentive to our needs. They would refill our glasses with water without being called. Will definitely go back and taste other dishes!
