The Chicken Pho (pho ga) at tiny Y&Y Restaurant on Clement street in San Francisco is simply exceptional. Exceptional for its simplicity. An austere bone-rich chicken stock is home to a generous portion of either plain roasted or five-spice flavored chicken. Add your own assortment of crispy bean sprouts, sawtooth or basil leaves, plus an accompaniment of sweet and peppery condiments.
Aso try the Chicken Bánh Mì , a paradigm of poise and proportionality, with each blissful bite offering just the right mix of sweet, fatty, smoky five-spice infused chicken, crispy baguette, cool cucumber, and sweetly-heated pickled carrot. The staff here is always quick and attentive.
