Hawaii Mom Blog: Rice Paper




November 3, 2016

Rice Paper

I always look forward to lunches with my small group of friends who are mommies and also Yelpers. We unofficially named little group the "Yelp Mommy Lunch Club" (not endorsed or sponsored by Yelp AT ALL) and although we all have jobs and kids to care for, we try to take time out of our busy work schedules to meet for lunch during the work week every other month or so.

We recently all met for lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant in the heart of Chinatown called Rice Paper. It used to be operated under the name "Pho My Lan", and it's my understanding that relatives of the owners of Pho My Lan took it over and renamed it to Rice Paper.  I never visited Pho My Lan, so I can't make any comparisons between the two.

The restaurant was pretty empty when we dined here at 11 am, which puzzles me, because the food is actually quite good, and the prices are very reasonable. 

I ordered the BBQ pork and spring roll rice plate, and enjoyed every bite of it. The pork was very moist, tender, and not fatty. The spring rolls were crispy and not greasy at all.

My friends loved their banh mis and commented on how the bread was really soft.

If parking wasn't such a problem in Chinatown, I would definitely come here more often!
