Soup is one of the most basic of comfort foods. Vietnamese pho (pronounced pha), is a noodle soup primarily made from beef or chicken. At Lan's Vietnamese Cuisine, there's also a vegan version. Lan's is an example of attaining the American dream. Started as a delivery service in 2005, a year later the owners opened a small downtown café. Two years after that, they opened their present, larger Cerrillos Road spot. All the dishes are prepared from recipes handed down through Lan's family and she feels they're all comfort food. Best sellers include My Quang (a noodle dish), Pad Thai and Coconut Seafood Soup. Ypu'll find locally grown food here in season including produce Lan grows in her own garden. Most of the dishes are gluten-free (rice noodles are a basic in Vietnamese food) and there are a lot of vegetarian and vegan options available.

- Homestyle: "Try the lamb wontons, they're tops. Gourmet Magazine once asked Lan for her recipe. She turned them down. She wants to protect these recipes, passed down though her family for generations. They represent tradition and a legacy of prosperity for them."
- Best for Homestyle Because: Lan's Vietnamese Cuisine offers Asian comfort food at its best using quality ingredients including locally-grown produce when available.
