Lunch at Pho Mai in Whittier. It's a little place (30 customers, tops?) and is pretty packed, probably 'cause there's no other pho in the area.
The pho itself is fairly so-so, not terribly flavorful broth, but it's edible. The real letdown is the nem nuong (grilled pork patty spring rolls), which had about the saddest pieces of nem nuong I'd ever seen hidden inside their overly-chewy skins.
