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.
