This little corner eatery is in the very heart of the Pham Ngu Lao backpacker area. Allez Boo serves affordable one-plate meals and a good selection of Vietnamese and faux-Western in an open-air corner bar. Come for dinner and stay for drinks or a game of pool in this busy but cozy spot, all done up in a beachside bamboo-and-thatch theme. The food is good (stick to Vietnamese dishes), and it's always hoppin' till late. You're sure to meet some fellow travelers. It's pickpocket central, though, so keep an eye out at the window tables.
