Eden Center: Rice Paper

I love best friend days. The other weekend I got lunch with one of my best friends. She asked me what I wanted and naturally I listed everything imaginable but settled on soup. Jessie lives very close to Eden Center in Falls Church so we decided to walk there (which is advisable if you can because that shopping center is cray). 

We are slowly working our way through trying the restaurants in Eden Center, and Rice Paper was next on our list. Most pho places in the shopping center are packed during prime hours so expect a wait. Luckily we were one of the few twosomes dining and were able to be sat right away. 

We split an appetizer of beef salad (Bo Tai Chanh) $11. The acidity from the limes, tang from the onions and crunch from the peanuts paired perfectly with the beef. I got a plain chicken pho (Pho Ga) $8. The broth was super delicious and did not need a lot of extra seasoning to make it better. Of course I added in some lime and srirachi. I also really liked how onions were added to the pho - it is not something I have come across a lot. Jess decided to be daring and try something a little outside the box - Canh Chua Ca / Tom $13. This had shrimp and okra and other things in it, and while it wasnt bad, the pho was the winning soup of this meal. 
Overall this was a good meal, quick service and one of the many delicious Vietnamese restaurants in Eden Center. 

Would I come back? Yes! That beef salad - so delicious!
