La Cai Noodle House

I’ve driven by La Cai noodle house more times than I can remember.  My mother in law lives in the Liberty Park area, so I turn down the road between the restaurant and the Audi dealership 2-3 times a week.  Although they have upgraded the building and expanded once in the 10 years or so I’ve driven by the building, the one thing that hasn’t changed was the number of people who visit this place.  It is always packed and I’m talking both lunch and dinner.  Seeing a restaurant with such a strong and solid following is definitely a great sign.

La Cai Noodle house is a Vietnamese and Chinese food restaurant.  I believe their strength however to be their Vietnamese cuisine, especially the pho and bun offerings.  I’ve tried now a few of their Chinese food plates, and while good, they are not quite up to the level of their Vietnamese stuff.

Vietnamese Crispy Egg Rolls

If you want a recommendation for appetizer, look no further than the Vietnamese Crispy Egg Rolls.  While I was sitting down during my last visit waiting to order.  I literally observed 4-5 of these plates go out to various tables in the restaurant.  It felt like a no-brainer, everyone that goes there has to order it, so I played copy cat and followed suit.  This picture really gives you a rear view perspective of the egg rolls.  These objects are definitely much larger than what they appear, and at only $6.95, you can easily make this a meal for one person.  I was so full after consuming one and half, I barely had any room left for my main entrée.  The rolls were huge, and very meaty.  The dipping sauce and a nice sweet honey tinge to it.  Definitely order these.

Chicken curry bun

This is the plate I barely had any room left over for.  The bun noodles were tasty as was the curry sauce.  I wasn’t a huge fan of the thick cut slices of chicken as I found them to be a bit flavorless.

I wish I would have taken a picture of one of the bowl’s of pho.  The bowl’s were definitely papa bear sized.  I really liked the La Cai portions.  If you leave this place hungry, you clearly didn’t do it right.

Come here for the bun or pho.  Start your night out with the crispy egg rolls, and you won’t go wrong.  I personally would stay away from the Chinese section, but I’m open for suggestions if anyone has a favorite dish they would like to recommend.
