I love the combination pho bowls. It’s open late night, so I like come here to eat and drink sake when I work late on Friday and Saturday nights.

I really like chef Bryce Gilmore’s style of cooking. His menu constantly changes and he makes a lot of unique stuff. When it’s on the tasting menu, I really love the charcuterie plate. He makes one of the best head cheeses I’ve ever tasted.
