Description: Beef noodle soup with eye round steak, tendon, fat brisket, bible tripe, well done flank.
I discovered this dish because: I’m a huge fan of pho. So I scout the area looking for good bowls of it.
My favorite thing about this dish: Their broth is lighter than most, but still plenty flavorful. No stuffed feeling.
I’d recommend this because: Their Sriracha sauce isn’t average—it has good kick.
Clinton says: I eat pho all the time. I started about 5 years ago. I’ve probably spent more time researching, experimenting and locating pho restaurants across the area than I have anything else that’s not related to my job. It’s a major ritual in my life.
