Sao Mai is a pint-sized Vietnamese noodle spot in the East Village that's slinging up superior bowls of pho and bun. The unassuming shop features subtle-yet-spicy takes on characteristic Viet dishes -- including a special house beef broth loaded with fatty brisket, rib-eye, and meatballs -- plus offers BYOB when you dine in. Large portions and an under-$10 lunch special make Sao Mai a reliable and tasty choice.
