Pho?!?!?!?!

Recommended Posts

lol, pho seems like a random topic to revive from the dead.

I suspect that there are probably many many great places for pho in sj though.. GL finding the best.

As for me, I live within 15 min drive to 3 of the best (general consensus opinion) pho restaurants in LA, excluding OC.

i have never had pho and i really want to try it. i would like to know where is the best in san jose, and if those are your 2 recomendations have they changed since you originally posted?

Usually, the best Pho are from the dirtiest, seediest, looking restaurants.

Make sure to order the 'special' or the one with intestines, giblets, blood jelly, etc.

Even better if the Pho "restaurant" has been on TV for violating health regulations.

That is when you know the Pho is "traditional".

It's interesting that there are reports of health violation on Australian media.

In LA, that only happens if many people get majorly sick.

I want to hit up one of those pho places with those numeric names like "Pho 999" or "Pho 25" I couldnt see an Italian place having the confidence to do that. The shit must be crazy good.

Oh man, I LOVE pho. I can eat it all day. My personal record is eating it 3 days in a row, 3 meals a day. And I still wasn't tired of it.

Lucky for me, I live pretty close to the San Gabriel Valley, which has a pho restaurant on every block, it seems. The best I've had so far is at Golden Deli, but I don't go there much because the wait to get in is insane and it's ALWAYS crowded no matter what time of day it is.

There are some veggie/vegan pho places around LA as well as some yuppie ones, but it's just not the same.

My favorite is pho with flank, steak, tripe, and tendon. I don't know why, but I always order tendon and like the first couple of bites, but by the end of the bowl, the texture just seems disgusting and I can't eat any more of it.

My family makes chicken pho with thick flat noodles and that's pretty damn good too.

if you've ever watched that stupid video about making pho, the phuc dat bich guy says it correctly.
