Street Side is a tiny Vietnamese BYOB on Girard that mostly does takeout, so when you end up working late in the office and are too tired to even reheat the chicken you put in the freezer for this exact occasion, it’s a good place to stop at on your way home. Everything is inspired by Asian street food, and other than their pho (which is one of the better bowls of soup around), this place mostly does small things that are easy to eat on the go. Some of our favorites are the pork belly rice paper roll, the kroeung beef skewer, and the pork and chive dumplings.
