In terms of looks, these guys are hipper than your average pho spot. That means you can have dinner here with a friend who wants to take pictures of their food. And you can watch them do this while you eat a banh mi or a bowl of pho - or both if you get the “French Dip” banh mi, which comes with a side of broth for dipping. An Choi is on a lively (but not crazy) block on the LES, it’s very laid-back, and you won’t spend too much here.
An Choi is permanently closed.
