Dac Hoa is a Vietnamese restaurant on Monroe Avenue. They have been around for a long time, and have a pretty good following. One of the things they're known for is their daily fresh made BBQ. We ordered the BBQ pork appetizer, which was tender and incredibly tasty.
My dad was really excited about the Pho. It's a big bowl of broth with meat, bean sprouts, rice noodles, and spices. He ordered the chicken, and tossed the rest of the BBQ pork on top for extra flavor.
This is what came on the side of the Pho. He tossed this stuff in the broth and seemed extremely happy with the meal.
I really should have written down the name of my dish. I have no idea what it's called, but it's from the Vietnamese portion of the menu. It's rice noodles with beef and a fried spring roll topped with nuts.
Mine was served with this fish sauce. The fried spring roll was awesome dipped in this. The entire dish was very good, and under the surface I found a salad! It had bean sprouts, cucumbers, and lettuce. Odd.
My dad's friend had the roast duck Pho. Roast duck is actually the other thing Dac Hoa is known for. This is clearly a family owned restaurant, and I have no complaints. If you dig Vietnamese food, check out Dac Hoa: 4 stars.
