Golden Era 2 is now open, and it’s significantly better than the original Tenderloin branch of Golden Era. This is, for those not in the know, a vegetarian Vietnamese place featuring all sorts of fake meats made from soy and suchlike. alohatiki doesn’t think well of the original Golden Era; she vastly prefers their sister restaurant, Golden Lotus. But, much to her surprise, she found Golden Era 2 utterly pleasing. Both veggie chow fun and bun hao noodle soup are excellent.
