Despite the name, the pho is just okay at this neighborhood Vietnamese, a scuffed, rambling space with the faint outlines of a 1950s dinner lounge. Focus instead on the cháo, bowls of rice porridge similar to Cantonese jook. Its Saigon street food at its most basic, comforting slurries of long-cooked rice. Cháo ca gio heo is studded with soft hunks of sweet-tasting white fish, canned straw mushrooms, and garlic chives. If youre really brave, try cháo huyet, swirled with metallic-tasting pork blood.
