For starters, Golden Deli is not a deli. It’s a Vietnamese restaurant that’s home to one of the strongest lunch rushes in the area. And though you’ll probably have to stand on the sidewalk outside for a half hour, know that the food inside is worth it. Everyone is eating the beef pho, and while it’s fantastic, we get the #89b broken rice plate: shrimp paste, grilled beef, and two egg rolls. And to be clear, you really need those egg rolls.
