Do you remember my story of being shushed at My Dung? If you don't, the short version is that I was told I "smile too noisy."
Eff you, My Dung!
We haven't been back to My Dung since, and now we've found a suitable replacement -- My Hanh (8450 E. Garvey Avenue, Rosemead). It even sounds similar! And we can smile as noisy as we want here!
Tasteful decor? No. But the food is decent, and the price is right, even if you'll experience quite the language barrier with servers. Your best bet is to point to the number of the meal you want. The menu has very clear English descriptions, even if your server will look at you quizzically.
My soda chanh ($2.50) was great -- tart, not too sweet, and perfectly fizzy.
Glam's pho looked mighty good, as did the stand-alone plate of appetizer egg rolls.
Bax opted for Chinese sausage and shrimp fried rice ($7.95).
Will this place knock your socks off? No. But nothing on the menu is over $9.00, so at least your wallet will be pretty happy.
And they don't shush you here.
