nab's recent excellent report on Ba Le in dorchester had me reading more about its best dishes,and discovering a dish i'd like to get- bun cha goi- grilled bbq pork w/ vermicelli and fixin's and fried spring roll. Sounds excellent and refreshing for this hot july. Le's sounds like a big No; how about Pho Viet? (we're rarely in the So of Boston area.) Thx much.
Pho Viet's serves good solid cheap food. It's a huge pile for the money but if you're picking on quality you shouldn't go there. I like the grilled meats at Xinh Xinh, where they are moist and flavorful. The meats at Viet's are heavily sauced, cut-up bits (it's pretty hard to tell the beef from the pork, it's so sugary) and are kept at room temperature before being dropped in the deep frier and put in your meal.
