Excellent pho, excellent main dishes – are they a branch of Hai Duong? I enjoy the broken rice with pork chop here, but the offerings are remarkably solid all around. Maybe it’s not the #1 pho place, and maybe it’s not the #1 “regular Vietnamese entrees” place, but if you could only have one local Vietnamese restaurant in your portfolio? Maybe this would be it.
