DETAILS
Good, fresh food at a reasonable price can be hard to come by in East Nashville's Five Points. If you're not in the mood to brave the multiple varieties of questionable pub grub, you'd be better served to walk two blocks south to Far East for well-prepared Vietnamese cuisine. Husband and wife owners Aaron and Hang Rosburg (who hails from Vietnam) opened the restaurant in 2009 and have earned a small but devoted following on the relatively quiet corner of Fatherland and 11th. A cute, contemporary space with exposed beams, mirrored walls and a decent sized patio, Far East excels with fresh ingredients and Vietnamese fare that never leaves you feeling too heavy. To start, go with the fresh rolls with a peanut dipping sauce, or there's the salt and pepper fried squid, which boasts excellent texture. Of course, there's the requisite pho with flank and sirloin (tofu or shrimp can be substituted). But the can't-miss dish at Far East is surely the cold rice noodles with grilled pork and vegetables. It's full of flavor, garnished with fresh herbs and absolutely fantastic. Spicy food aficionados would do well to order the tamarind tiger shrimp or the shakey beef - they'll bring the heat if you ask nicely. $5 wine by the glass and other drink specials are an added bonus. Beer and wine available. Serving lunch and dinner Mon-Sat. Closed Sun. "The traditional meat pho broth is still delicate and onion-y and featured nicely seasoned beef balls. The thin noodles are served al dente and are quite good."
