If you honestly can’t remember the last time you’ve had a steaming bowl of pho, this needs to change immediately. This classic Vietnamese soup boasts tender cuts of beef, savory broth, noodles, aromatic spices, cilantro, red chilies, lime wedges, bean sprouts and Sriracha. Let’s just say it’s like getting french-kissed by the soup gods. Did we mention the huge portions?
Hit up our Top 5 Pho Spots, because there’s nothing better than slurpin’ up a bowl of pho with a cold glass of da chanh.
#1: Luu’s Baguette (Manhattan) – Say goodbye to overcooked beef and noodles. Luu’s packs most ingredients separately so you can have the perfect bowl of authentic pho at home. You can probably eat here almost every day for the next month without shame. Well, maybe some shame. Simmer down, it’s between you and the delivery guy.
#2 V-Nam Cafe (Manhattan) - Pho-eva alone? A visit or two from the delivery fairies might just get your spirits up. At this little Vietnamese cafe, it’s all about the broth. And the beef. And the noodles. Gah, just TAKE OUR MONEY.
#3 Falansai (Brooklyn)- Cooking from scratch? Ain’t nobody got time pho dat. This Brooklyn gem has a menu decked out in mom’s secret recipes. Not to mention it’s extremely vegetarian-friendly, boasting various meatless options and even a vegan pho with snap peas, mushrooms, tofu and okra.
#4 Pho Viet Vietnamese Restaurant (CHI) – Nothing turns a gray day around like a bowl of pho and some summer rolls from this Chi-town hotspot. Six orders per week might just mean you have a problem. Or a solution. It’s hard to tell.
#5 Pho Viet and Grille (DC) – If someone tells you they don’t like the pho at Georgetown’s best kept secret, unfriend them immediately. Yummy broth, vegetarian options, and HUGE portions—you might not even make it to the bottom of the bowl.
