That's kind of my point. A lot of hidden things in all restaurant food. I know a lot of viet places also use msg sauce like maggi seasoning in a lot of food. Nothing was get at a restaurant it going to comply until someone from the Paleo community opens a restaurant. But as an occasional "cheat" this is better then getting a pizza

the broth in pho is bone broth. SO good if they've made it from scratch!

I'm thinking there are a lot of "hidden" sugars in commercial Vietnamese foods. In the hoisin sauce, fish sauce, curry, bbq, etc. But if you are truly craving it, what's wrong with having it once in a while?

Depends on how strict you are. I believe if you are super restrictive paleo (no grains, gluten, dairy, soy etc) you really can't eat out anywhere ever again. I think a lot of Vietnamese is going to have some wheat based soy sauce. While I avoid regular soy sauce , I think the amount of gluten is trace and unless you have celiac then having one meal with some every week or two won't kill you. I also personally eat white rice a couple days a week as it's a pretty safe starch. There are a lot of things in Vietnamese made with rice noodle instead of wheat so to me it's safer then Chinese food in general. There are a ton of regional asian cuisine where I live in LA but unfortunately I don't speak the language and most of the servers don't speak very good english so trying to question them about ingridients and if something has gluten is pretty much worthless
