Mi Xao Don at Pho Basil on Mass Ave right near Symphony. Crispy yellow noodles, fresh vegetables, meat (or tofu) of your choice, and a wonderful Vietnamese gravy on top that the noodles soak up.
For more than 3 years it's been a monthly (if not weekly) must that I just haven't found equalled anywhere else in the city.
