Description

This storefront treasure isn’t fancy, but it is cherished for serving unheralded specialties from around the old royal capital of Huê, the epicenter of Vietnamese cuisine. And it’s stayed focused for more than two decades on turning out some of the very best Vietnamese food in town, using impeccably fresh ingredients, for no more than $10 a person. When you see elderly Vietnamese ladies chatting at a four-top whilst assembling their lettuce-wrapped bundles of banh hoi rice noodles for lunch, you know you're right where you should be. Of particular note are soups, especially hu tieu thap cam, a clear pork broth with egg or glass noodles, a full brace of squid, shrimp, sliced pork, and quail eggs; and (weekends only) banh cuon banh cong, delicately steamed rice flour crepes harboring pork and black mushrooms.
