After getting takeout coffee from Rumors European Café, I saw this Vietnamese restaurant tucked away in the corner diagonally behind the café – Le’s Kitchen. They took over the spot where Mima’s Meatballs & More used to be. Since we rarely venture out on Mill Plain Road, Le’s Kitchen pretty much fell under the radar.
Anyway, hubby and I went to try out their soups. He had this lovely bowl of Grilled Beef Pho, which came out steaming from the kitchen. It came with the usual cilantro, scallions, onions, bean sprouts, basil, jalapeños and lime.
I tried their piping hot Wonton Noodle Soup with egg noodles, watercress, and pork and scallions dumplings. So good!
Verdict: It’s great that there are now two Vietnamese restaurants in Danbury, Le’s Kitchen and the forerunner of Vietnamese food here, Pho Vietnam. There’s also Sprouts Vietnamese Eatery in Bethel, which I haven’t blogged about despite going there practically every week due to its proximity to our place.
Now back to Le’s Kitchen. . . affordable? Yes. Homecooked? Seems like it. Service-wise, their servers are pretty amiable and good-natured. We’ve been there thrice, but we haven’t tried their other menu items yet. We keep ordering their fresh noodle soups, plus their freshly-squeezed limeade. Their soups are generously portioned and prepared to perfection. Sometimes, all you need is a big bowl of flavorful soup that makes you feel good after eating it.
