    Outstanding pho and great price! Add some hoisin sauce and sriracha to the broth to spice things up.

    Like all great versions of the Vietnamese sandwich, the Saigon Classic Special ($4.85) is carefully proportioned.

    I expect there to be a food cart in the back. The spicy baguette sandwich concept is so simple. And soooo delicious. And $6. Heeey!
