Located in the Garage, a small Harvard Square mall, this quick-service eatery is known for its authentic and affordable Vietnamese cuisine. The dining area is a simple, no-frills space, although it does have ample seating and funnel-shaped lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Despite its unassuming interior, Le’s has a loyal following of locals thanks to its flavorful, relatively healthy fare served in large portions. The specialty here is pho, the classic Vietnamese soup made with broth, meat, and noodles and then garnished with bean sprouts, lime, chilies, and basil. Additional menu items include salads, stir-fries, rice plates, and vermicelli bowls.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
