Since I am overflowing with street smarts and problem solving skills, I quickly assessed the situation and all possible alternative plans, and without looking back I swiftly re-located to Thien Vietnam Restaurant around the corner (on 3rd Ave).
I have been to Thien a couple times before, and have been thoroughly impressed every time, not only by the extensive menu, but also the diligent service and warm atmosphere (complimented nicely by dozens of golden cat statues in all shapes and sizes that smile and wave from countless random locations throughout the restaurant)
My meal of choice at Thien is #57 on the menu. This is one of several Jumbo Combo's and includes a Vermicelli Noodle Bowl, topped with BBQ Chicken and Shrimp, and served with 2 Vietnamese Rolls. (below)
Of course I used chopsticks, I love chopsticks!
If you like chopsticks, spring rolls, or Vietnamese food in general, you will, without a doubt, enjoy Thien Vietnam Restaurant. Check it out.
