The noodles at La Me, a Vietnamese spot in far northeast Dallas, go well beyond pho. Try my quang, a bowl of rice noodles with turmeric in the dough to turn them yellow. The noodles are loaded up with shrimp, peanuts and a showering of herbs. Or try a delicately flavored duck noodle soup with fatty, bone-in pieces of bird. Even the egg rolls here are good.

Top pick: The “house special” my kho dac biet noodle bowl is served with broth on the side, so you can eat it as a soup or not. It also comes with a whole, shell-on shrimp baked right into a cracker, and yes, the crispy cracker-bound shrimp shell is edible.

The downside: Bun bo hue and pho aren’t the go-to orders here, so if you want those Vietnamese classics, you’re better off heading elsewhere.

Fun fact: Plan a lunch visit carefully, because La Me fills to capacity at peak lunch hours, and it’s possible a table might be taken up by an employee doing prep work.
