Zen Hole in the Wall
I went to a new restaurant today that I wanna gush about. Maybe it was the air, maybe it was the company, but the food was fantastic.
It’s a restaurant that can’t be any larger than a taco stand—but with a counter inside, one table, and two seats outside.
Are you intrigued?
Well, I don’t know the name!
I don’t think it has a name. It’s that small—no room for a sign.
Let me Google it, brb.
Vietnamese Soy Café, on Hyperion in Silverlake. I could walk to it from my house, and we should have as the road is torn up right there and traffic is dumb.
We both enjoyed the white fish sandwich with turmeric and pickled vegetables and a Vietnamese coffee. They both come highly recommended from yours truly.
We hung around after and spoke with a man who is, presumably, the owner. He learned to cook in Vietnam, and is very interested in holistic health.
There are several things on the menu that I want to try, concoctions, potions, and other food items. He has a “master cleanse” shot, for those of you not in the know, that is lemon juice, cayenne, and maple syrup. He has an apple juice and Pennywort drink that is for cleansing the blood. He is working on a few more — that he might let you sample if you ask really nicely.
He has an “A” rating.
Spread the word—cuz I want this place to stick around.
