Last year, 10 of us went to Le Cheval, a Vietnamese restaurant in Oakland, to try their 7-course beef menu. We had a good time, and the food was yummy, but the meal was not inexpensive.

Recently, we discovered Anh Hong Saigon, which also serves a 7-course beef menu, so yesterday, 12 of us headed over to Milpitas give it a shot. We ordered only 9 servings for the 12 of us, but added two dishes of beef carpaccio and two dishes of shrimp and rice, which turned out to be the perfect amount of food. The total bill came out to about $20 per person, and the food was just as good, although the restaurant itself is much more casual (it's located in a strip mall).

Le Cheval has other well-known dishes that I do want to try, and it's a nicer dining experience, but next time I're craving Vietnamese-style beef, I think Anh Hong will be the restaurant of choice.
