Has anyone tried Ban Le on San Pablo in El Cerrito?

    Many have and I do on a regular basis. Careful, it can get quite crowded when EC High has let out for lunch.

    This post gave me the urge to go git some Pho Ga and I have to say, this one today is quite tasty. There's a higher fat content in the broth, nice.

    Perfect for a quick and inexpensive lunch when in the area.

      Here's a link to a search for Ba Le Vietnamese Sandwiches. It's generally well thought of - maybe not quite as good as the best in SF but I'm glad to have it in the neighborhood.
