Pho near Hollywood willing to travel!

I have always enjoyed Pho So 1 next to the 99 Ranch in Van Nuys (off Sepulveda).

2 days in Philly/early am recs and fois gras search

Hello hounds,

I'm looking for recs for a mid-day stay around the city center area (staying at the Bellvue Hyatt). A combination of cheap eats and Philly must-haves will be appreciated. I am already planning on hitting up the Reading Terminal Market and the Dim Sum Garden possibly. Flying in on the red-eye so an early am breakfast place is needed. And a recommendation for a reasonably priced ($30-40/pp) nice dinner would also be helpful.
Also bonus points for recommending a good place for fois gras. It's been banned in CA so it will be nice to treat myself......

I heart Buffalo wings.

The sauce at The Slice is good. They do have the super secret Suicide sauce that doesn't appear on the menu. I wouldn't recommend it as it is REALLY super hot. It's the kind of hot where it's all heat and no flavor. Not that enjoyable. But I usually get a mix of the hot and suicide just to kick up the regular hot. The only issue that I have with this place is while the quality of the sauce is great, the bad thing is the consistency of the wing. More often than not, they have been fried for way too long and end up on the dried out side.
