Huong Tra 12221 San Pablo Ave. #8/after MacDonald Ave., (510) 234-7428. L-D M-Sat; $. No reservations.
Located in a strip mall, this formerly small place recently knocked out a wall and doubled in size. It continues to serve up large portions at bargain-basement prices but now without a wait line. Tabletops are polished granite, chopsticks and forks are wrapped up neatly in a napkin, and beer glasses are chilled.
