A small 'hole-in-the-wall that becomes packed at dinnertime, with terrific food and a staff who treats customers like family, Bun Mee Phan operates in the metropolitan area's 'Northland.' Banh Mi is a favorite classic Vietnamese dish available here. This combination of toasted baguette and pate with choice of meat, fresh cucumbers, cilantro pickled radish, carrots and onion, results in such taste treats as Lemongrass Chicken or tender Caramelized Pork Belly. For a slightly sweet twist, Banh Tieu substitutes a Vietnamese beignet for the baguette. But there's more to this menu than sandwiches. Ultra-fresh shrimp spring rolls get high marks, and there are even tasty riffs on tacos, including Fried Tilapia with lettuce, daikon radish, cilantro and Sriracha mayo, on a flour tortilla.
- Asian: "Infused with chewy tapioca, bubble tea is a must-do at Bun Mee Phan. Choose from more than a dozen offerings with unusual flavors that include taro, lychee and durian; or perhaps blend one of these flavors with watermelon, avocado or pineapple. Either way, you'll enjoy this refreshing Vietnamese 'slushy.'"
- Best for Asian Because: When a customer who has traveled extensively through Vietnam recommends a stateside Vietnamese restaurant, it's definitely worth a taste.
