verdict: tasty, try it!
went here for dinner and the food was yummy. i read about their hainam chicken and made a point to order it since returning to dong nguyen seems unlikely due to the distance from my hood. trust me, if it was nearer, i would totally be all over it. come on now, you can't beat the price ($7 on average for most dishes) and the taste!
the hainam chicken is pretty delicious. it's basically boiled chicken (dark and white meat) served on a bed of chicken broth rice. the secret is in the sweet ginger dipping sauce. yummm. definitely reminds me of good home cooking and the simplicity of the dish should not be underestimated. it makes me think that i'm having a healthy meal, just like how my momma would have made it.
don't forget, they only take cash so head out to the nearest atm before you go there.
