Is that orange vintage Vespa in the window of the restaurant? The food must be good then.

Yes. From what I was told it is a Vespa Super 150 (?) and they used to have another one, but it is no longer on display. The other window has a pedal rickshaw, but I could not get a good photo due to the light contrast and glare.

The food was very good. I am not sure about the rest of the US, but in the northeast they are some pockets on first generation immigrants. In my previous job, I was very fortunate to work with several persons born in Vietnam and they introduced me to the cuisine.

We have lots of great Vietnamese restaurants here in Toronto. When I have dinner on my own, I will often go to my favourite one and have a bowl of Pho.

Beware !!! The Avalon Scooters use Manh's (from VNscooter) Vespa & Lambretta Photos for marketing his name to lie customers, they no have original Vespa - Lambretta like the photo !

They use his photos( Vespa VB1 , VL2 , GS160 , Lambretta LD, LI2.. with hidden number plate) to post on many site , forum . Some friend think Avalon Scooters is him ! That's made misunderstanding of Vnscooter Co.,Ltd . He sent email , called but Avalon Scooter no reply with his warning !

He's the owner of Vnscooter Co.,Ltd , he don't know Avalon Scooters , Vnscooter Co.,Ltd not related to Avalon Scooters !!!

The way Avalon did is:
- You see the great scooter on their site (picture stolen from Vnscooter)
- You buy it.
- They said that scooter was sold out, they'll make another scooter like this.
- You receive a wrong scooter.

I'm a Vietnamese. I feel ashame with the way Avalon Scooter did.
Tell this story to your friend , protect them with Avalon Scooters!
