Fodor's Expert Review La-Cai Noodle House

$ Downtown Salt Lake Vietnamese

Named for a historic restaurant district in Ho Chi Minh City, this low-frills eatery set amid auto-parts shops south of downtown re-creates the cuisine of southern Vietnam. The menu ranges from traditional basics like beef-brisket pho and stir-fried crispy egg noodles to more creative fare, such as walnut shrimp in a creamy white sauce, salt-baked calamari, and a massive hot pot that's perfect for groups of two to four. Portions are huge and service is impeccable.
