Ignore the cheesy nameÑthis modest restaurant is home to a remarkably diverse selection of authentic Vietnamese fare. Banh cong, a deep-fried muffin-shaped fritter of prawns, taro, and mung beans, is a choice lead-in. House specialty soups vault beyond conventional pho offerings standout bowls include hu tieu bo kho laden with chunks of slow-braised beef, shredded banana blossom, lemongrass, and chili, and bun rieu, a spicy soup with crab, prawns, tomatoes, and tofu. A succulent grilled lemongrass pork chop is served atop broken rice with shredded pork and a slice of steamed egg meatloaf.
