Visit cheap eats institution AJ Vietnamese Noodle House
AJ Vietnamese Noodle House, or AJs as it is affectionately known, is an institution for cheap lunchtime eats of the Vietnamese variety. Of a weekday, hungry office workers pour out onto the streets and form a line in front of AJs, eager for a simple, delicious feed.
The staff members have impressive memories, always remembering who was next for a table, and often taking orders before you’re even seated so to lessen your wait time. The fading menu is taped to the front window, making meal decisions quick and easy for curious passersby. No matter how run-down or drab it might seem from the outside, those who have sat amongst its buzzing interior, been served by the friendly staff and inhaled generous servings of traditional Pho will know the pure joy of an AJs meal.
Regulars tend to find a favourite in their first-ever meal and stick to it. The best dish is a matter of opinion, ranging from the Spicy Beef Noodle Soup to Rice Vermicelli Salad with spring roll portions. With meals under $10 and quick service, whether you’re opting to takeaway or dine-in, AJ Vietnamese Noodle House is a must-visit.
