It's always happy hour when you consult your Spirit Guide. Your best friend for bar-hopping lets you in on the drink and food specials, tells you where the music is (and isn't) and helps you find the perfect spot. A great night out starts with Spirit Guide.
9800 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Every time we go to May Hong we kick ourselves for not going there more often. This place is great! The papery skins of the Vietnamese egg rolls are always perfectly golden, and the cinnamony pork perfectly tender. The menu here is expansive, but you can hardly go wrong. Just close your eyes and drop your finger anywhere— bun bo hue (spicy beef soup), ginger mussels and goi chai (Vietnamese salad) are particularly good. Wash it all down with a jasmine limeade or jackfruit julius. Just don’t go on Sunday—it’s closed. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
