Monkeys Place in Ambilly/Annemasse: Quite Wonderful for 13.80 E After 4 Months.

By Johntalbott

Monkeys Place in Ambilly/Annemasse (FR) is the sort of place one (me) only tumbles into after a funeral of a friend of 50 years; goofy name, across the street from my Ibis hotel/motel, unheralded by the websites; and rec'd by a bilingual concierge/desklady as one of those places across the street that "doesn't look like much from outside but has great food."

It also extended my search for good bahn mi thit and pho, a search I've been unconsciously pursuing since Viet Nam in 1967-8.  And it did not disappoint.

In addition to the aforementioned; they had 4 sauces staring at you - soy, BBQ, piquant and nuoc mam, the only good thing our Army brought back from that silly war (just as Korea intoduced kim chi to American palates).

In any case, if you're in the area and want/need a reasonably priced meal, prepared and served by a charming young couple, this is it.

The bill, with a bottle of Saigon beer, no bottled water, coffee or dessert, was 13.80 E.
