I've just spent a few weeks in Vietnam and have come back a major Pho-convert. Much Vietnamese dining is done in rudimentary street restaurants (which often have plastic children's furniture to save space) and the food is delicious - big steaming bowls of soup packed with noodles, sliced meat, bean sprouts, and tons of fresh herbs (a big plate of fresh mixed herbs - usually mint, basil and corriander - is as common a feature on their tables as salt and pepper is on ours).
So my questions are: Where can one get good Viet food in New York (both cheap and pricey versions), and is there such a thing as Little Vietnam here?
P.S. Speaking of hounds, I did try dog (sorry); it tastes a bit like lamb.
