CULVER CITY— East Borough, which has been serving a variety of Vietnamese comfort dishes since its opening about a year ago, will commence serving pho on November 10. When asked why they finally started serving the classic dish, they replied by saying that customers had been asking for it and after a year of service, decided to serve pho as the weather cooled down. It costs $9 and is available every weekday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
