Da Nang Quan Review: Central Vietnamese Food in Oakland

My entire life I've been fortunate to have access to the most amazing home cooked Vietnamese food made by my mom. There's nothing like a steamy hot bowl of bun bo hue, a spicy lemongrass beef noodle soup with beef shank, pork roll, congealed pork blood, and pork leg/feet. There's no other bun bo hue

Vietnam’s Central is good. Visited for an early dinner last night and we enjoyed: a platter of pot stickers with pork; deliciously herbal plump shrimp spring rolls, a loaded bowl of Pho with flank steak beef; and a bowl of vermicelli noodles with grilled pork. We found the spice level to be fine even without asking, though I usually like to spike up my pho. Nice, comfortable room, too.
Caveat: Tom, the proprietor, is very friendly and communicative. While our appetizers came out in good order, the mains were delivered too quickly backing us up. I pointed it out nicely…

I’ve been going to Vietnam’s Central 1-2 times a week since they opened. I really like or love most of the food. The only things I didn’t were items that I just don’t care for, but everything is very well prepared. I’m not sure which pho I like better the beef broth with beef flank, or the chicken broth with grilled pork chops.

By the way, their pork chops are fantastic. Thin, on the bone, tender, marinated lightly, and grilled up all smokey tasting. Besides having them sliced into the pho, they have them as an entree and I highly recommend them.

Listed under “Starters” the Mango Catfish is really nice. It’s a filleted, young catfish lightly battered and crisply fried. Very crisp batter, very moist, tender, and mild fish. The mango sauce is made from green mangoes, not sweet ripe ones, plus lime juice, and other sauces and vegetables, a hint of cilantro, and a tiny bit of chile pepper. It’s a cool refreshing sauce, not spicy. It’s good as an app to share, or if you order a bowl of rice to go with it, it makes a light meal in itself. perfect for a hot summer day.

The starter Lemon Shrimp are very lightly battered marinated shrimp, very tasty, and with a creamy, tangy, lemon sauce that is most definitely based on the French colonial influence on the cuisine. really nice if you like creamy lemon sauces.

The Lightly Caramelized Pot I had the pork, but they have Catfish, Pork, or Salmon steak and options, is long braised pork belly that had almost all the fat removed before cooking so it isn’t fatty, just luscious and mildly unctuous. All the goodness of pork belly, but with only a small amount of the fat, so while the dish can be on the heavier side, it isn’t the gut bomb of pure pork belly. The meat is dark brown from the tick sauces it is simmered in. It is meant to be eaten with or over the rice, and is a flavor packed dish of pure meaty goodness, lightened by the rice.

The Hot and Sour soup, with either shrimp or tofu, I got with shrimp, is not like Americanized Chinese H&S, but lighter, tangier, and more refreshing. And not gloppy like the Americanized H&S soup.

The entree of Vietnam’s Hot Wings were a bit too plain for me. Nicely crispy, nicely marinated before cooking, but not spicy at all. And I like my wings spicy. But if you don’t then they may be to your taste.

I will report back on other items as I try them. I have had others, but with how many meals I have out these days, since I don’t like to cook much on hot days, everything starts blending together and I can’t remember everything I eat.

Finally got to try Vietnam’s Central this weekend. We went Saturday night 8pm. It was pretty crowded. The owner was very friendly, good service. We had the spring rolls, beef pho, stir fried noodles and the grilled pork over noodles. The spring rolls were ok not great. Was hoping they would be Nem (with the glass noodles, mint, etc.) but this was more bland. The pho was, again, ok but not great. The broth was a bit thin and while it had a nice beefy taste it wasn’t as flavorful or rich as I was hoping. Inside the broth it basically just noodles, broth and sliced beef. No herbs or other vegetables/aromatics, etc. They really need to put more effort into the Pho. The grilled pork over noodles was pretty good, as were the stir-fried noodles with chicken (plenty of fish sauce and lime which was nice).

They don’t have their liquor license yet (should be another 4 weeks), so you can bring your own.

Maybe it was an off night, I’ll try again when I’m in the neighborhood, but I was disappointed in the food quality. The service was very friendly.

Well, I am curious as to how it will be. There is not a glut of traditional Vietnamese restaurants in the area, like none. Saigonese is lightly Americanized and over priced for medium/small portions. The Banh Mi shop is mediocre, small portions, and Americanized to the extreme.

When I hear a “eccentric and unique Vietnamese cuisine concept” restaurant, or those words associated with any restaurant, especially Asian, it tends to mean small portions at twice the price, and dumbed down flavors. With Vietnamese this is a travesty since the flavors are so light, delicate, refreshing, and well balanced; even using some very hearty flavored ingredients.

It was lunch, we were not starving , so shared the fried spring rolls, the lemon shrimp starter and stir fried noodles with chicken. All were tasty and nicely prepared. None were spicy, but we had a trio of spicy sauces on the table to augment whatever we chose. And, by the way, they were doing a brisk business.

Just went to Vietnam central today for lunch.

Ordered an iced coffee with condensed milk, the van summer rolls, hot and sour soup, and veggie potstickers.

Iced coffee was slightly different in taste (too much ice compared to the coffee).
The summer rolls were amazing! Never expected it to have a refreshing taste with the sauce inside of it as well as the sauce served on the side.
By far, I agree with you JMF, that the hot and sour soup is light, tangy, and refreshing. I’ve never had a better soup. it was high quality. Overall, the flavors blended well with each other.
The potstickers were succulent and had a different texture compared to other dumplings I’ve had. The sauce on the side was extremely tasty (it might have had fish/oyster sauce).

I loved the experience, but didn’t understand the prices. Way to expensive for the portions.

The chef is commendable.

Beyond pho on Oakland’s Vietnamese restaurant row

Beyond pho on Oakland’s Vietnamese restaurant row


San Francisco Chronicle

Beyond pho on Oakland’s Vietnamese restaurant row Ten years ago, pho was the throughline that linked the Vietnamese restaurants on Oakland’s International Boulevard. From 2nd Avenue to 15th Avenue, laminated menu after laminated menu listed the same variations on Vietnam’s most famous soup. Much of what you’d order was the sweeter, more aromatic Southern-style beef noodle soup, with the occasional appearance of chicken pho. Over the past decade, most of the smoky cafes and soup parlors with sticky tabletops and fluorescent lights have faded out or, in the case of the marvelous Pho Ao Sen (1139 E. 12th St.), beautified. The broth has a faint and fetching anise note, almost like a Vietnamese bouillabaisse, and the noodles are covered in meats — braised chicken, prawns, roast pork — as well as herbs, ground peanuts and stiff twists of polka-dotted rice crackers. When you sit down at this 2½- month-old place — a burgundy-walled cafe with a koi pond in the front and a card room in the back — owner Kim Thuy will bring over a basket of fresh herbs and direct you to grab a drink from the refrigerators. The bun nuoc leo ($9), a specialty of their hometown, softens the ferocity of fermented fish with lemongrass and crispy roast pork, and Mien Tay’s anise-tinged chicken curry ($8) is as sweet and delicate as a tapioca pudding. Floating over the tangle of rice noodles are crab and shrimp meatballs, broth-drunk fried tofu, and fresh red and green cabbage. At this 5-year-old cafe, bun mam ($8.50-$9.25) made in the style of Soc Trang, a province southwest of Ho Chi Minh City, is so good that competitors up and down the stretch have begun advertising it on awnings and photocopied wall signs. First-timers may freeze at the first smell of mam ca, the fermented fish paste that flavors the cola-colored broth, but its sharp odor seems to disappear by the third spoonful. [...] the banana blossoms and herbs you’ve dumped into the bowl have melted into the soup, and your attention is captured by the bun mam’s depth and delicate sweetness, not to mention all the crispy-skin roast pork, prawns and poached fish your chopsticks bring to the surface.
