The thought of steaming hot Pho and blinking neon lights has lured in many hungry larks to this restaurant in the north side of Chicago’s Little Vietnam in Argyle St.

Why 8? The number “8″ is considered as the lucky number for the Chinese, much like 7 for the rest of us. “8” in Chinese is pronounced as “Fai” – means rich. Who doesn’t want to be rich? That chef seems to be hoping and waiting to strike his riches.
