Vietnam House Deserves Your Love

Vietnam House, a restaurant on Eddy between Larkin and Polk, turns out sparkling renditions of Vietnamese classics like banh khot, yet doesn't get the foot traffic of Little Saigon's main-corridor eateries. Locals tell it straight: Work this spot into your regular dining rotation, and get creative by calling in advance to ask for special orders like tamarind crab and fried catfish.
