In an attempt to bring more authentic Vietnamese food to New York, owners Tuan and Huy Bui have opened this small space designed to look like a street alley in Saigon. It comes complete with a mobile food cart dispensing banh mi sandwiches, including fillings such as crispy roasted pork with pickled carrots, daikon radish, cilantro and aioli. The restaurant also specializes in pho: chicken or beef broths with rice noodles, bean sprouts, Thai basil and lime.

I love An Choi. My most recent experience was on a rainy night and it did NOT disappoint. It can be a little bit tight while waiting or even sitting.
For the best experience, visitors should really try the half/half combo. With the beef noodle soup and a catfish banh mi (including a fried egg), it's the place to go for some authentic and delicious Vietnamese food. The cocktails are also delicious.
