Location Description:

Cali defines Vietnamese hole-in-the-wall, from the no-nonsense older woman who mans the counter to the no-frills (though sunny and relatively clean) dining room. Lunch crowds mob the place for homemade-tasting vermicelli bowls and $3 Vietnamese sandwiches on crunchy French bread. Seating is often limited, but to-go orders are filled fast. Smoothies are cheap and come in a variety of flavors, including stinky durian for the adventurous.
