Co Ba

110 9th Ave. New York, NY 10011 | Chelsea | 212-414-2700

Location Description:

Co Ba aims to serve the same kind of homey Vietnamese cooking offered at neighborhood stalls, though this version is prettified and refined. The long, enticing menu comprises small snacks, banh mi sandwiches, noodles, clay pot meals, and beef three ways, a dish that gets its own paragraph. All are reasonably priced. Of the small dishes, we particularly liked the steamed coconut rice cakes topped with shrimp, and a pungent mix of ground pork, wood-ear mushrooms, jicama, and fried shallots, doused in lime juice and fish sauce. Don't miss the banh uot thit nuong: It's a jumble of succulent grilled pork, bouncy Vietnamese ham, cucumbers, fried shallots, herbs, and cool, thick rice noodles. Of the clay pot dishes, go for the amazingly luscious pork belly in caramel.
