Restaurant Review: Roostar Vietnamese Grill

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is one of our favorite restaurants that we visit at least once a week. My favorite meal is a a tofu box. First you pick your protein (tofu, pork, beef, chicken, etc. ) then you pick from rice vermicelli noodles, rice, or salad to put it on. At this point your box automatically comes with some salad but you can add a bunch of different things (like an egg roll). If you don’t add anything it costs $7.50…  I usually add avocado and a fried egg and sriracha sauce (that’s just Asian hot sauce). After adding all of the extras, the price comes out to $11.05 but it’s pretty worth it!!

My favorite type of food is anything Asian, but my number one is probably Vietnamese food. Roostar has actually won a ton of awards, the most impressive being Yelp’s Top 100 places to eat in the US, which is pretty awesome! Makes sense why it’s so delicious. It’s so easy to order because they have an easy to use app and you can’t really go wrong with anything on their menu. They have vegetarian options too. I’ve been to a lot of restaurants but this place is one of my favorites because of the taste, healthiness, and convenience.

YUM!
