Decided to finally give Red Sparrow a try and had absolutely no regrets!
Yes, they are a lot pricier as compared to some of the more main stream Vietnamese eateries / restaurants but the quality of the food speaks for itself.

Pho Ga ($18.00)
Talk about a bowl of noodle soup that warms the soul and this is certainly it. Because if my dietary restrictions, I had to separate the soup and the restaurant was more than happy to oblige.
The noodles were perfectly cook and while the chicken was slightly on the over cooked side, it was still tender.
It also came with an amazing meat ball that was so meaty, heart my and flavorful but the star of the show was the soup. It was robust without being over powering. With each spoonful, you can taste the umami-ness as well as the delightful aftertaste of the spices used in the soup.

Ga Nuaong ($24.00 + $3.00 for plain rice)
This chicken salad was to die for. It was sweet, spicy, Smokey yet juicy and tender. Every bite evokes your senses and leaves you craving for more. It’s everything that we love about Vietnamese food and more.

The drinks were a bit of a let down though. The sugar cane with calamansi was overly sweet, with barely a hint of sugar cane or calamansi.

The service though we felt was a little slow considering that there were only 4 tables including us. Maybe because it was Chinese New Year and they were a bit short handed.

Overall, it was still a great experience and we’ll definitely be back to try the rest of their menu.
