Best Vietnamese

#1 Pho

While many old-school Vietnamese restaurants make their dishes saltier than the Atlantic Ocean, #1 Pho makes liberal use of cilantro and tangy fruit sauces to keep your taste buds entertained. The catfish comes in a hot pot, marinated in succulent teriyaki sauce. The stir-fried vegetables are covered in a great orange-mango sauce, on a bed of crisp vermicelli noodles with big triangular slices of tofu on top. Inside the restaurant's green Victorian building, the ambiance is fresh and dramatic, with blond wood floors and long red curtains hanging all the way to the floor. And prices are reasonable - most dinners cost between $7 and $11.
