Lunch & Dinner Feasts

At this bustling cafe in the interior mall of the Eden Center, a table of four can feast for less than $40. The menu ranges from steamed “crushed” rice dishes topped with grilled pork to eggy Vietnamese crepes stuffed with shrimp, but the real standouts are the huge, steaming bowls of pho ($7 and up).

The broth is rich and fragrant—a swirl of hot sauce and a few shreds of fresh basil add bright flavors. The protein-packed house-special pho ($7.95)—with eye-round steak, brisket, tendon, tripe, and beef meatballs—could easily be dinner for two. Leftovers the next day are even better.
