  Turtle Tower along Larkin Street
by Ewingjr98
 
 

Turtle Tower is one of the most popular and best restaurants in Little Saigon. When we visited, the place was packed with local Vietnamese residents, so we knew it would be OK and relatively cheap. We each had pho for around $5-6 per bowl, and it had plenty of noodles and meat for our taste. A dash of the Vietnamese hot sauce and I was in heaven. Turtle Tower is decorated with paintings of it namesake, Hanoi's "Tortoise Tower".

The restaurant is relatively small, with maybe 10-15 tables, and all were full during most of the lunch rush. They do have a separate dining room just down Willow Street just 20 feet from the main entrance.

Favorite Dish: You can't go wrong with any of their 20-some varieties of Pho.
