Le’s is a cheap Vietnamese place in that big, brick strip mall-type building on the corner of JFK and Mt. Auburn in Harvard Square. It’s almost always busy, usually with a lot of Harvard students filling both levels of the tiered seating set-up. Just about everyone around you will be eating some kind of pho, but if you’re not in the mood, the crispy spring rolls over vermicelli noodles are a nice alternative.
