The Chef: Brooke and Sunflower Restaurant
The Menu: Vegetarian Vietnamese Vermicelli. Also known as Bun Xao Chay, this noodly dish is filled with tofu, mushrooms, bean sprouts, celery, and red-leaves salad. Amazing!
The Goods: Ah, the Mission and its endless possibilities for eats. Our lunch hours are literally inundated with options. I kid you not when I say I spent the better part of 40 minutes walking up and down Valencia, checking out restaurants, reading the posted menus, and creepily trying to peek at what people had ordered. But, always a creature of habit, I went back to my favorite Vietnamese place in the city and ordered what I always do, this generous serving of noodles that will be both my lunch and my dinner.
