I'd heard about this place but never made an effort to find it and then stumbled over it when I was going to the Tile place around the corner. Anyway it was lunch and I'd heard the house specials, the subs, were delicious. The place was a dump, there was only other customer in there and the fish tank was dirty. The view of the kitchen wasn't appetizing but I enjoyed watching the old Vietnamese people bickering with each other! Regardless, I ordered the pork sub and a bubble tea (which I was familiar with 10+ years ago when I lived in NYC). 10 minutes later, my little sub came out and the only woman behind the counter made my bubble tea. I brought everything home and the sub was delicious, truly out of this world bursting with flavor. The bubble tea was awful, frozen (am used to shaken) without the wonderful black tapioca pearls and with fruity hard gelatin shapes. I threw out the bubble tea and then realized that I was getting a headache from whatever the sub was made out of. I've discovered that I have an MSG sensitivity in recent years, and Pho Cali was my favorite place to eat until I started getting headaches after eating their dishes. So bottom line, get the sub, skip the bubble tea and make sure you're not a pain in the tush like me!
