*'''Bahn's Cuisine''', 750 9th St, ''+ 1 919'' 286-5073.  Most of the week this is an average Chinese takeout place; however, on Wednesday and Saturday they serve Vietnamese home cooking and soups.  A local hangout since 1985.  The locals can tell you're "not from around here" if you order Chinese on those days.  There are both vegetarian and vegan plates.  The "#8 Vegetarian plate" of fried tofu and a vegetable roll is the most popular dish on Saturdays and to a lesser degree on Wednesdays.  The "Pork Bun" is a good choice for small children as is the Satay Chicken (they'll frequently make adapted portions for children).  It is cash only.  Plates and sides are $3-$9.
