Description

This cheery little hole in the wall, snuggled between a cigar garden and the All Ways Warm stove shop, is a gold mine of inexpensive banh mi, flavorful soups, and lesser-known Vietnamese bites. The not-so-secret house treasure is banh khot: golden, crisp-edged Vietnamese seafood mini-pancakes that aren’t often found at Portland pho houses.Beyond the grub, Nam Lộc is mostly all about iced Vietnamese coffees, neon fruit smoothies smuggling jelly chunks, and so, so much Keno and video poker. You could happily waste an afternoon here watching reruns of Law & Order on the overhead TV, drinking cheap beers with the regulars, and filling up on comfort snacks.
