Feast of beef
Bo 7 Mon, Anh Hong
Family-run operation Anh Hong has a few locations in California, all specializing in Bo 7 Mon, which translates to seven courses of beef. Sounds magical, doesn’t it? The Vietnamese feast starts off with soothing rice porridge, salad flecked with beef bits and a carpaccio packed with zing. The finale throws four types of beef at you at once for wrap-it-yourself spring rolls: beef sausage, meatballs, thin beef rolled around lemongrass and beef wrapped in piper lolot leaf, served alongside a bounty of fresh mint, bean sprouts and pickled vegetables. The quality isn’t as high as some other spots, but it’s hard to argue with seven courses for $15.95. 4800 Florin Road, www.anhhong.com.
