This tiny old-school establishment inside Chinatown’s Far East Plaza might only be open during the day, but the zippy, clean-tasting bowls of steaming hot pho, budget-friendly banh mi and other well-executed dishes all make a morning or afternoon visit here worth the time, planning and money. One of the most centrally located spots on this list, Thien Huong is the rare restaurant where everything—and we mean everything—is solidly delicious. In recent years, the former cash-only spot has begun taking credit cards, and a remodeled dining room and extra outdoor seating have made this place our go-to place for Vietnamese food around Downtown. Note: This place fills up quickly on the weekends, so head here early or you’ll have to wait for a table.
