  1. Tie between Nhu Lan in Lincoln Square and Hoanh Long in North Park: the former does banh mi sandwiches plus baked goods, while the latter makes pho and other cooked entrees.

    Don't bother with Argyle, honestly...

    1. I'll second Nhu Lan, the banh mi are great, and are only $3.50.

        Hoanh Long make an amazing fried squid dish. Their appetizers are really good. Their is a fried shrimp one which was quite tasty. I tried their beef dish that they got written up for and it was meh to me. But the other stuff I tried was great.
