If you like Bistro B but don't have time for a full-service dining experience (or to make your way through their 500 item menu), you might check out Rollngo on Greenville Avenue. Bistro B's sister restaurant opened last week, just south of Northwest Highway, and offers Vietnamese food on the fly.
Banh mi run $4.25, or three for $10, and come in at least 14 varieties including meatball, grilled chicken and pork, and a crispy turmeric fish version looks worth a try. Rice platters range $5.99-$8.99, and grilled meats and fish and a few common sautées like shaking beef are available.
Rollngo also picked the perfect time of year to open, given their dining room design. Indoor seating is limited, but there's an extensive patio in front of the restaurant. There are worse things to do with that small sliver of time your boss gives you in the middle of the day, than to sit outside in the breeze and slurp your way through a bowl of pho, while chomping on some spring rolls.
Alice Laussade gave Bistro B an "A" for awesome when she wrote about the restaurant in 2012. Rollngo go will focus on the healthier dishes from the Bistro B menu, and they'll be open from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. during the week, and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.
