This spot is great for a casual lunch or weeknight dinner in the Mission. Their pho ga is the chicken soup you’ll wish you had when you were home sick from school as a kid, but the real thing to get is the vegetarian bun bo hue with spicy vegetable broth, mushrooms, tofu, pineapple, and thick noodles. If you want something small to snack on, get the five-spice quail or bi chon chay with mushrooms and roasted rice.
