One of the most popular Vietnamese restaurants in San Diego, the menu at Phuong Trang offers hundreds of appetizers, soups, noodle dishes, and main courses, which can make choosing a meal a bewildering process. Waiters steer you to tasty, moderately adventurous offerings like fried egg rolls, char-grilled shrimp paste wrapped around sugarcane, beef in grape leaves, and fresh spring rolls filled with pork and shrimp, but if you're feeling adventurous there are plenty of
less mainstream options as well. And if you just want a simple meal, you can't go wrong with broken rice and a grilled pork chop. The large, relatively spare dining room gets packed, especially on weekends, but service is speedy, if sometimes curt.
