Try this banh mi bo kho at our No. 1 spot and thank us later.
1. Cafe TH

When it comes to amazing food, fantastic prices and top-notch service, it doesn't get better than our favorite neighborhood banh mi and noodle shop, Cafe TH, which is run by one of the best front-of-house men around, chef and owner Minh Nguyen. Come in for incredible banh mi (we like the luscious xiu mai, or pork meatballs), starting at just $2.31 for a 6-inch and $3.24 for a large. Or try a plethora of curries, vermicelli dishes or our favorite, a rich bowl of bo kho -- a star-anise-laced beef stew served with French bread, rice or egg noodles, or, upon your request, all of the above ($5.55 for a small, which is in fact very large; $7.39 for a large, which is in fact huge). Whatever you decide on, we're sure you won't be let down.

I can't believe you left out Long Sing Supermarket!!!  Amazing deal - $6 I think - for a 2 meat, one veg + rice plate of awesome roast duck, roast pork, char siu, etc...

Good list. But kinda obvious since EADO is rather small and still residentially underdeveloped.

My addition would be District 7 Grill and personal map of EADO Eats

Cajun Stop is wonderful -- did you know they now serve breakfast? Some yummy Cajun stuff early in the morning.

I might add Madola's Deli and Kanomwan Thai, but I've got to admit the food is so great at Kanomwan I usually drop about $20 for lunch.

You really should avoid showing open-faced tacos. I get that you're trying to show the contents, but they end up looking like soiled diapers.

@sylviana They both fall a bit outside the map, but look out they may pop up in another neighborhood list
