This Vietnamese restaurant is a very welcome addition to a stretch of McDowell Road better known for a multitude of Mexican eateries. The must-try on what is an unusually manageable menu (for a Vietnamese restaurant, that is) is the banh mi ($2.95) sandwich, perhaps the best of its kind in town, featuring a juicy barbecued pork fillet, cilantro, and jalapeño on a fresh bun. Though not quite as excellent of some of its local competitors, pho dac biet ($5.95) features a richly flavored broth filled with beef and rice noodles. Spring rolls and noodle dishes round out the menu, along with delicious and colorful fruit smoothies and juices.
