In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.


Le Soleil


Here's a pretty modest follow-up to my French Laundry meal - a quick lunch with my mom at Le Soleil. I hadn't been in a while, but Le Soleil has always been a pretty solid Vietnamese place at the beginning of Clement. I was surprised to discover on this visit that they've redecorated, with a bunch of new, hipper furniture. It actually looks kinda cool in there now. The menu has pretty standard Vietnamese fare.

combo lunch plate - soup, imperial roll, salad, and bbq pork chop with rice - $8.30 At lunch they have this special combo plate that comes with your choice of the pork chop I got or five spice chicken. Everything was pretty tasty, and the portion is quite large. The soup was a bit on the sweet side which surprised me; I was hoping it'd be more spicy. The pork was tender with a nice char to it. The roll was nice. Basically good stuff all around but nothing new.
