Hy Vong

A neighborhood mainstay for more than 25 years, this tiny Vietnamese restaurant has only 35 seats, all constantly occupied by locals. Fill up on expertly prepared Asian specials such as kingfish with yellow curry sauce, cooked on a six-burner stove. If you arrive after 7pm, the wait for a free table can be brutal—up to two hours on occasions—and the service can be slow too. But fans swear the food is worth it.
