Best Pho in SF?

Looking for great pho in SF. Suggestions, please!

Best Dim Sum In SF

Yank Sing certainly gets a bad rap. We eat there frequently and there is always a large proportion of Chinese diners, especially larger parties. Plus the owners are from Hong Kong. Would love to see a bit more variety, but have always had great dim sum there. Yet to make it to Koi Palace, which has a strong reputation.

Used Restaurant Equipment?

Check out Economy on Irwin St in SF. If you are in the business, they should extend you a discount on purchases. As the other poster stated, they also carry used stuff in the back.
Commercial sinks dedicated to warewashing/pots are typically 3 bay, while a prep sink can be a single or double bay unit, FYI...
