Sleek, modern Ngon specializes in dishes from the Hanoi region, packing a lot of variety into a menu barely the size of a place mat. Take your pick from an array of salads, curries, rice and noodle bowls, banh mi, and northern-style pho, which is said to be the original, purest form of the beloved Vietnamese national dish. Order this to go: Imperial rolls and crab-fried rice both traveled extremely well, were easily shareable, and were our favorites overall. Pro tip: Unless you can walk, bike, or ride-share there, or you enjoy battling for a parking space, try to go during the week, as Lower Greenville is back to being a mob scene on weekends.
