Di An Di Is Not To Be Missed…NYC Restaurant Review

Di An Di has been on my restaurant bucket list for a long time.

Brooklyn is not the most convenient place for me to get to.

Last Sunday, I finally made the trek as my summer after surgery field trips in my extremely comfy new car gets me out of the house so that I do not lose my mind.

Traffic was not bad and we found a great parking spot.

The chill, intimate restaurant with a tropical vibe, serving modern Vietnamese fare, screams welcome.

Named for an endearing Vietnamese phrase shared between friends and family, Di An Di translates to “let’s go eat.”

We sat in back across from the kitchen in a bright, happy room filled with lush green hanging plants.

I love Vietnamese food.

Di An Di serves up absolutely delectable Vietnamese cuisine.

We kicked lunch off with an order of 3 crispy, hot Imperial Vegan Spring Rolls (Chá Giò Chay) with a rice raper filled with tofu, mung bean, mushrooms and carrots. We wrapped the rolls in crispy lettuce leaves and fresh basil with a tasty dipping sauce ($12).

The Rice Cake Omelette (Banh Böt Chién) with outrageous green chive rice cakes and pickled radish was perfection. The soy dipping sauce was scrumptious ($15).

My husband ordered a Catfish Bahn Mi (cá Chiên) with Galangal aioli, red onions and dill on a fresh,  crunchy baguette. The sandwich was top notch ($15).

We split the bowl of Do Nurong with the best homemade Vermicelli, top grade Grilled Pork and a fresh salad with crisp cucumber and magical lemongrass honey fish sauce (Thit Nurong) ($24).

We wanted to try more fabulosity, but we were satiated.

We ended the meal with splendid iced Vietnamese coffee ($8).

Di An Di is owned and operated by first-generation Vietnamese-Americans. The outstanding cuisine is rooted in tradition with a focus on innovation.

If you have a hankering for Vietnamese food then Di An Di is a must…the food is fabulous and my food guru, the amazing Raymond Trinh, owner of the beyond incredible Sixty Three Clinton Street restaurant on the lower east side recommended Di An Di…even more reason to go.

Di An Di 68 Greenpoint Avenue Brooklyn, New York. Open Tuesday 4-10pm and Wednesday-Sunday 12-10pm. Reservations on Resy. Street parking.
