Vietopia Restaurant


By Laisha Cruz, Staff Writer

There are a lot of different types of Asian food and one of my favorites is Vietnamese food because it is super healthy for the body. One reason is that it is low on fat and often it is gluten free. With loads of vitamins and minerals it gives your immune system a boost and helps you lose all that extra weight you have been trying to lose. Not only that, it taste it delicious.

Vietopia is a simple and cute restaurant, that is full of Chinese lanterns all over the ceilings and fans that are shaped like leafs that move slowly. Well to start off with there are appetizers; the spring rolls come with peanut sauce and it’s super light in your stomach.

For a drink, if you need an energy booster, Vietnam iced coffee is great. It is honestly the best coffee I’ve tasted in awhile.

There are plenty of different plates to pick here such a Pho, which is vegetarian soup.  Other soups include  Eye Round Beef Noodle Soup, Eye-round beef & well-done flanks, Shredded Chicken Breast noodle soup, Seafood Noodle Soup, Meatballs Noodle Soup, Eye Round Beef & Meat Balls. These are all served with onions, cilantro, bean sprouts, basil leaves, sliced jalapenos, & lime. You won’t be disappointed on how great it tastes.

One disappointment was the attitude of the waiters.  When I was there I found the waiter to be kind of rude.  This wasn’t a huge problem, but I feel like they should be a bit more nicer to their customers, but other than that it is a great place to eat pho!
