Công Tử Bột is right across from Izakaya Minato, on a street with a lot of other excellent dining options. But this place stands out because it has one of the most exciting Vietnamese menus we’ve seen in a while, plus you could come here for every meal and not get bored. Stop by for bánh tiêu stuffed with Chinese sausage and eggs in the morning, brothy phở gà after 3pm, or a guava cocktail if you need a break from the breweries. We’ve even dropped by in the morning to pick up thick slices of pandan cake and other pastries for a long drive out of town. There’s a cute little patio out front, but this place works best for a takeout situation when you want something low-stress.

Izakaya Minato

Izakaya Minato on Washington Ave.’s menu includes sashimi, fried chicken, and udon for when you want Japanese food and are also being indecisive.
