When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Vietnamese cuisine and drinks at Pho 69 on 1st Street.

A native of Vietnam who studied at Le Cordon Bleu in San Francisco, Chef Darren Nguyen and his wife curate a contemporary menu of fresh Vietnamese favorites at Pho 69. The eatery's namesake dish is a classic comingling of rice noodles and fresh herbs in fragrant broth, available with swinging free-range chicken or refined filet mignon ($8.45) as well as in a vegetarian rendition ($7.95). The banh-mi sandwich finds grilled pork nestled into a french-roll abode alongside pickled-root salad, cilantro, and jalapeños ($7.55), just as most teenagers sleep in rooms filled with posters of pickled-root salad, cilantro, and jalapeños. Domestic and imported beers ($4.85) as well as traditional Vietnamese nuoc dua tuoi—young coconut with basil seeds ($3.55)—rinse gullets between courses.

Abundant local produce and an absence of MSG keeps diners packing into this SoFA-district watering hole like ice cream into a kleptomaniac's refrigerated pockets. Readers at Metroactive awarded Nguyen's winning fare the Best of Silicon Valley 2011 prize in two categories: Best New Restaurant and Best Pho.
