New delights are deli-cious



Just when the deli scene near downtown was about to lapse into a deep sleep, along comes Anh Hong a Vietnamese takeout deli open from 8 a.m.-9 p.m. every day at Colonial Drive and Mills Avenue.

Drive and Mills Avenue.

Skip the token sandwiches and step up to the hot buffet. Here you can choose from a rotating selection of six or so entrees and side items such as rice crepe cakes with shrimp and pork, vermicelli with grilled pork, or spicy beef noodle soup. A plateful of food generally costs about $5. But what the menu doesn't advertise is even better. Ask for one of their South Pacific smoothies, which are sweetened with the most ripe fruits, rather than sugar. Our favorite is the coconut-mango ($3). As for parking, you'll have to wedge into a spot by the curb or, more likely, head south on Mills and find the first available parking lot.
