Bodega Bistro Review

Located on the slightly sketchy edge of the Tenderloin, this casual Vietnamese bistro brims at lunchtime with savvy eaters from Civic Center offices who come in for steaming bowls of pho (the beef versions are particularly good). For dinner, groups of diners overload round tables with green papaya salad, roast squab, bun cha Hanoi (broiled pork, herbs, rice vermicelli, and lettuce wrapped in rice paper), and salt-and-pepper Dungeness crab with garlic noodles, the latter priced for a special occasion. You'll see many French touches on the extensive menu.

    Female hostess was rude and unfriendly, atmosphere was noisy, and price was steep, lemongrass chicken was dry.
