CLICK HERE FOR THE 2018 PHO GUIDE

With the openings of Momofuku, Bantam King, and Haikan, ramen may be what more people are gravitating to these days, but sometimes you don’t want something new and flashy. You want something home-y. Something you can rely on. That thing is pho. Considering it may snow today (after multiple 60-70 degree days) we can’t imagine a better dish to help you power through this weather whiplash. You’re welcome.

Nam Viet offers a large array of Pho, like a Vietnamese take on chicken noodle soup or Spicy Sweet and Sour Salmon Soup. They have a wide array of broths to choose from, so the standard single-broth-but-many-meat option doesn’t really apply here (but you can and should check out their menu right over here). They also house an impressive vegetarian pho with bok choy, napa cabbage, shitake mushrooms, sugar peas, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, vegetables, tofu, and either steamed or fried tofu.

What the Pho

From our very own review:
“Pho’s not the only thing available at What the Pho. You can also feast on Bahn mi sammies or bowls. If you’re really feeling frisky, try the summer rolls. I had the beef Pho and was stuffed by the time I slurped my last noodle. The cilantro bean sprouts, jalapeños and basil toppers are a great addition that will add a fresh kick. And go ahead and be that guy who drowns his Pho in siracha. I won’t tell anyone.”
Forever Sides: fresh basil, cilantro, bean sprouts,  fresh jalapeños & lime wedge.
Meat in Your Mouth: Beef or chicken.
