Song Que is one of the most popular Vietnamese restaurants along Pho Mile (Kingsland Road near Old Street) and on most days, you're likely to have to join a queue for a table. But that wait is worth it for the food that'll come your way. Start with tender beef wrapped in betel leaves, looking as black as beetles, each morsel just big enough to pop whole into your mouth. Or how about a plateful of crispy yet juicy soft shell crabs? Then move on to big bowlfuls of pho or bun - Londonist is a fan of the big and beefy pho broth. And the best part? Big portions of excellent food for bargain prices.
You might think this a good place to hide from the ghouls and goblins out tonight but watch out for the giant lobsters hanging on the wall! Happy Halloween!
