Maybe you didn't grow up ruled by a Vietnamese mom. You can make up for some of the home cooking you missed at this SOMA coffee and doughnut shop with burgers banh mi, and daily lunch specials. The chicken curry has bulky pieces of firm, boneless meat, and roll-cut carrots chunky enough to appeal to a Clydesdale, only plastic-fork soft. The curry's warm-tasting with cinnamon and bay leaf and muted chile, bleeding into a modest heap of rice. If it's not busy, and you sit near the register, the ladies behind the counter will watch you ― mom-like ― while you eat. If you know what's good for you, you won't leave a scrap of rice.

Latte Express 648 Fourth St. (at Bluxome), 348-8898.
