Sang Devan (Deuan?)

This noodle dish was VERY tasty.

The sauce was good; the fish...was tilapia.

Look at this beautiful beautiful sticky rice!

Miko wished her coconut juice was in a coconut.  I wished my iced coffee was decaf.

  • They fully redecorated, and a lot of it looked DIY.  They are very into aesthetic details -- for example, they used fresh flowers at each table.
  • The noodles were very tasty, with a strong lemongrass flavor.
  • The sticky rice was also good, and the portions were generous.
  • The servers were kind, and the prices were reasonable too.
  • It was kind of our fault for ordering freshwater fish, but the tilapia was pretty bad.  The sauce on it was okay, but it wasn't enough to mask the strong muddy taste the meat had.  Miko: it even triggered my gag reflex, and I couldn't finish the bite. 
  • Miko: The young coconut juice came in a glass, and it was sweetened.  I'd much rather have it served in the actual coconut without any extra sugar.
