Little Saigon makes me wish I had two stomachs

That was legit. 

I am still digesting that glorious meal and I just had to post about it.

How have I never had this place?  Several of you have probably mentioned this place to me and I must have had headphones in because SERIOUSLY it is incredible. 

The pork and shrimp spring rolls were sweet, crunchy and almost fooled us into believing we were eating healthy.  We absolutely loved the sweet fish sauce and bathed them in it. 

That same fish sauce went quite well with our meals. 

I had something boring called like, "chicken with noodles" or something like that.  Although it was not boring.  It was glorious.  They had gluten free soy sauce as well.  My wife had Pad Thai, which was also great.  The meat was tender, the vegetables offered the perfect compliment and there is one thing I still need to mention. 

The food is basically served in bath tubs.  How in the world they can afford to feed me for my next six meals is beyond me, but $8.50 seems downright cheap when you see the portions.  Please, please frequent this place.  The staff has varying levels of knowledge about gluten but they are all willing to ask. 

Go there now.

The Old Mill Tasty shop

Well, I haven't posted for a while, mostly because I forget to take pictures and this job pays zero, and I do lots of other stuff in my Church, my band and my family.  Forgive me. 

But I digress. 

I've been to the Old Mill Tasty Shop three times now.  Once I got instantly sick so didn't write about them.  However, I have been back twice with out getting sick and they are slowly adding to the gluten free menu.  The most recent thing I had there was a cob salad which was bountiful and covered with meat.  Since I am on a diet and trying to fit into a "large" WSU jersey I only used 3/4 of the giant bowl of ranch dressing.  Yeah, I'm a rock. 

I've also enjoyed the chicken salad, which they would say is their Go to.  It was quite good and exciting to see they have gluten free bread available for sandwiches.   If you work downtown like I do, you really need to check out Old Mill Tasty shop, if not for the old school charm, but for the tasty food.  Next time I am there I will try to get a picture.

Side Note:  I once got my belt loop stuck in the chair and had to get rescued by the staff.  Not embarrassing at all.
