This UWS Vietnamese spot has a small, spaced-out outdoor setup that’s perfect if you've only dined outside a couple times, but are ready to get out there more. Especially when “getting out there” involves Bún Bò Bơ with sizzling butter beef, bánh mì filled with charbroiled pork belly that’s a top contender for the best ones in the city, and the banh chung chien appetizer - a deep-fried rice cake brick made of ground mung bean that’s filled with pork and comes with a tangy soy dressing. It’s sticky, not too greasy, and a hefty appetizer that - with one of their entrees or bánh mì - makes for a filling meal that costs under $30.
