Fodor's Review

A casual offshoot of Charles Phan's Slanted Door, this spot is actually where locals prefer to go for his version of Vietnamese food made with high-end ingredients. The look is chic and simple, with an open kitchen, a communal table, counter seating, and an eclectic crowd ranging from Pacific Heights ladies to couples on a first date to young parents with their kids in tow. You can find all the Phan classics (spring rolls, daikon rice cake, crab and cellophane noodles,

shaking beef), but there are plenty of other standout dishes on the menu, like fried chicken. (Vegetarians will also find plenty to eat.) Lunch has some delicious soups, breakfast features porridge (jook) alongside tasty egg dishes, and the weekend brunch is truly delicious. There's excellent Vietnamese coffee made with Blue Bottle's brew, and plenty of quality wines and beers on tap to choose from.
