We’re all creatures of habit sometimes - we listen to the same playlist on every flight and always lather and rinse, but never repeat. Rose VL Deli, a Vietnamese spot in Foster-Powell, is where you should go to break out of your routine. Go early during the week (they often sell out) to try one of their daily changing specials, things like Bún Chả Ốc - sliced snail meatball, lemongrass, sliced pork, tofu, tomatoes, with vermicelli noodles in pork broth - or Bún Chanh Dây, with passion fruit, shrimp, squid, tofu, tomatoes, pineapple, taro stems, rice noodles, and pork broth.
