For more than a decade, the sweet Vietnamese couple behind this spot ran their restaurant on Argyle, but thanks to skyrocketing rents they moved to the edge of Logan Square. The casual room, doting hosts and home-style food make the experience seem like eating in someone’s home, only this someone churns out barbecue shrimp and sprout–packed Vietnamese pancakes; rice noodle bowls brimming with barbecue pork, crispy egg rolls and peanuts; tangy, spicy lemon shrimp; and restorative, delicate chicken broth–based soups.
