The other day I was out in Abbotsford and, rather than heading to a fast-food place, I decided to check out a local eatery. When I stopped for gas I noticed a Vietnamese restaurant in the strip mall next to the gas station and decided it would be my lunch destination.
Vi-La Palace is the name of the place. I’m not sure if they even have their own website, but you can find out plenty about them through Yelp, Dinehere, UrbanSpoon and through their Facebook Page. Apparently the owners are a married couple – he’s from Vietnam and she’s from Laos, which is where Vi-La in the name comes from.
There is a reasonable amount of variety on the menu and the prices are low to medium for lunch. I went with the regular wonton soup for $6.95, and I was quite happy with it. 8-10 wontons, some slices of barbecue pork and lots of vegetables. A little on the salty side, but overall very tasty.
I made a (semi) interactive picture of my soup using Tumult Hype. Feel free to explore!
