Oaklands first branch of this California chain specializes in banh cuon, soft rice noodles made to order. The warm, chewy noodles come with pickled vegetables and slices of lunchmeat-like steamed pork or shrimp and yam fritters, all to be dipped in fish sauce. Less adventurous eaters can stick to old favorites such as pho and cold vermicelli salads, but youll have best luck ordering soups with thick homemade rice noodles. First-timers can expect an exhaustive description of the menu.
