Fodor's Expert Review La-Cai Noodle House
Named for a historic restaurant district in Ho Chi Minh City, this place re-creates the cuisine of southern Vietnam. Despite its unassuming location amid a car dealership strip just south of downtown, a complete interior renovation ensures an extraordinary meal and experience once you step through the doors. The menu ranges from traditional basics such as pho (beef noodle soup) to unique entrées like walnut shrimp in a creamy white sauce, salt-baked calamari, and fondues. Portions are huge and service is impeccable, so it's no surprise that this seemingly off-the-radar venue is considered one of Salt Lake's best options for authentic Vietnamese and Chinese fare.
