A small place outside of Chinatown. Open 11AM to 10PM daily, except it opens later on weekends.
Different? yes. Good? read on.
Luckily, there’s a patio so the capacity doubles when weather permits. There’s a small menu of which more than half contains specialty drinks like bubble tea, bubble sherbet, special calpis drinks (whatever they are), plus others. Rather expensive, too, ranging from $3.50 to $6.00 each.
Food is available as well. There’s the usual pho, spring rolls and some bun. Then there’s stir-fry’s of chicken, lemon grass, oyster sauce and other nice stuff like salads.
Pho comes in one size only, and cost $6.75. Side condiments are sparse. None of them are on the table, not even the hot sauce.
