This tiny Vietnamese restaurant takes a page from New York's many cheap Chinese take-out joints. The drab interior?consisting of a large mirrors, two beaten-up wooden tables and large photos of restaurant specialties posted above the counter, encourages diners to get their food to go or quickly devour their meal and move on. More than 150 items grace the menu, ranging from Vietnamese staples such as grilled marinated pork chops over rice, lemongrass chicken with rice vermicelli and Vietnamese beef cubes, to tried-and-true Chinese dishes like lo mein and sesame chicken. If you want to splurge and spend more than $10 on a dish, you can opt for specialties like the fried whole fish with hot pepper and lemongrass or roasted duck with peanut sauce. Stop in at lunch at get a main dish with rice or noodles and your choice of soup, soda or egg roll for under $6.—Keith Wagstaff
