Since Pandemic, they have increased the price of the menu twice. The price of a large bowl of pho (it's actually a regular size bowl compare to other restaurants) is now $19.99 + tips of 25%. A stir fry garlic noodles with beef is now $30, I can go on and on....... Basically, they have increased $3 to $7 on each dish since last year. (increased $5~$10 each dish from 2019) Me, family, and friends have to boycott.

SIDESTREET PHO WHEN: Friday @6pm So I've been here twice now during the pandemic ever since they opened again--and they have a very simple and easy structure when ordering take-out: 1.) You can order via DoorDash or Cavier 2.) You can order directly from their website which is the way better option. When I first ordered the other month, you couldn't place an order until 5pm (which is when they open for dinner), and they end up being back ordered which causes an u expected long delay.  But they've got it all fixed. You can now order starting at 4pm!   For my second time around, I was able to place my order around 4:30pm and schedule for pickup at 6pm!  Also, if you want to ensure you sit end up with an unexpected delay, just wait until they text you that your order is ready to pick up. So for the last couple of times I've ordered take out, here's what I've gotten: SIDE OF SAVORY DONUT (cháo quẩy) - $3 You'd recognize these at Chinese establishments as Youtiao, which is a long golden-brown deep-fried strip of dough.  Here they cut them down into smaller piece which I really appreciate! I just pop them one by one even though I'm sure these were intended to be eaten in noodle soup. It's fresh--warm and crisp and fun as a side to snack on! K3. GOI CUPN DAU HU BO (Vegetarian Fresh Rolls) - $9.00 Spring Roll Filled with Tofu, Avocado, Crunch Strip, Vermicelli, Cucumber, Lettuce, Fresh Mint, and Pickled Daikon, + Carrot, Peanut Sauce. This appetizer is both light and feeling--overall refreshing and delicious!  I love that fried crunchy strip that gives it this nice texture, mixed with the soft avocado and tofu.  I absolutely love the dipping peanut soft--both sweet and savory. Everything comes together so well!  This is my favorite appetizer!  I tell myself this is the healthier option than the one with meat (also very good). X1. BO LUC LAC  (Shaken Beef) - $17.00 GARLIC NOODLES - $3 (otherwise it comes with rice). Wok Tossed Cubed Filet Mignon. I'm very impressed with this dish. The been used so flavorful and tender--there's plenty of it!  This entire dish is big so there's always leftovers for me.  What they don't mention on the menu is how this plate includes julienne cut carrots , chunks of onions, chopped lettuce and climates, all drenched in the flavorful meat juice! You definitely see all the chopped garlic in the noodles. If you're not in the mood for noodle soup I highly recommend this dish. I can't get enough of this place. Looking forward to ordering take out again!
