Fresh ingredients, spruced-up walls.
A renovation has saved Cafe Hoang from looking trashier than the New York Dolls. The variety and freshness of the ingredients remains top-notch. Bowls of thin Vietnamese soup (served with rice on the side) are big and delicious; the tamarind soup with shrimp or fish and lots of vegetables is particularly pungent. Steamed rice dishes are good too, and are often served with a bowl of appropriate sauce in addition to the hot sauces already on the table—one of which seems to consist of nothing but coarse-chopped chiles in fish sauce.
