If you’re looking for a quick bowl of pho or a banh mi near on the southern edge of Sunset Park, go to Thanh Da. It’s an extremely casual spot with a couple of tables and a serious takeout operation, and you probably aren’t going to spend more than $20 on dinner here (or maybe even $10, if you go with a banh mi). And, while we do enjoy the pho, the real MVP is the bún bò hue. The soup is a little spicy and a little tangy, with some pork, thick noodles, and basil and lime to round things out. Get a bowl, and don’t take it to go. It deserves better than that.
