Don't Feel Like Cooking Tonight?
The Cincinnati Magazine just came out with their dining guide and stated that there is only one Vietnamese restaurant in Cincinnati located in Roselawn. I panicked thinking our local Clifton restaurant closed so soon! I've been meaning to try Cilantro Vietnamese Bistro located in Clifton across from Hughes highschool for well over a year. Today I stopped in with the girls and ordered a tofu soft veggie roll (Goi Cuon Chay) along with Vegetables in Lemongrass (Bun Rau Cai Sa ot) The noodles were cooked to perfection and the sauces were all very light and bursting with flavor. One great advantages to the restaurant is that there are plenty of meat and vegetarian dishes so I imagine we will eat there often before getting tired of the menu. The most expensive dish on the menu is $6.50, so it's cheap enough to try everything at least once. Another good sign- there were some Vietnamese customers eating at the bar.
