Des Moines: Vietnam Cafe
Vietnam Cafe is in the food court at the back of Merle Hay Mall, in between Younkers and Kohl's. I stopped in for a quick, light snack. I ordered the won ton soup and was very pleasantly surprised. The broth was naturally light and clear (not the glow-in-the-dark yellow that some places insist on). It was complemented with bonito (dried fish) flakes, scallion, and a nice dose of pepper. The won ton noodles had tender, thin skins.
