Fancy yourself a pho fanatic? Can't find a bowl big enough for your insatiable craving for pho? Not to worry-- here are five spots to curb that appetite for good ol' fashioned Vietnamese comfort food in the blustery days of October.
This stylish and open Capitol Hill pho spot offers immediate respite from the weather with its superb Pho Ga, made fresh with local ingredients like Northwest roasted chicken and Wilcox farm eggs. With a motto like "Life is too short for five dollar pho", what's not to love? Seal the deal by dropping in on Sunday or Monday for cheap cocktails galore.
Opened late last year, Stateside is an airy and impeccably designed mecca for everyone's favorite comfort food. Try the Pho Bo (beef brisket and shank, flat rice noodles and fresh herbs) or one up the competition by ordering their delectable version of a French dip sandwich, the Pho'rench Dip, which comes with a side of pho broth for dipping.
Tucked away in the International District, Tamarind Tree is a true blue pho spot that is both inexpensive and romantic. From beef meatball to fried tofu, you can't go wrong with anything on the noodle menu here. Not in the neighborhood? Try their sister restaurant, equally solid Long Provincial, located downtown.
Get your pho on the go at this bright orange and mobile truck right off Nickerson in north Queen Anne. Steamy options here include steak, brisket, meatball and more. Curbside is closed on the weekend, so make sure to get it while it's hot!
Beacon Hill's Huong Dong serves up spicy lemongrass noodle soup as well as shrimp and duck varieties, making it a hearty option for soup lovers. If you're vegetarian, don't fret-- Huong Dong has an excellent vegetarian pho to boot. The best part? If you're holed up in your living room avoiding the rain, Huong Dong takes no longer than 20 minutes to fulfill take out orders.
