    I live less than a mile from it. Never tried pho, but the egg rolls are awesome. The place is always busy. Just wish someone in the area could make a good fried rice.

    Try the pho. Your stomach will thank you later. #17 is what I always get. Bahn mi’s are really good too.

    For those that consider yourselves uncultured and afraid to try it, this type of food has mostly familiar flavors and nothing that should turn anyone off. They just seem to know how to put the right flavors and textures together to make the food craveworthy.

    Matt and John, I have lived less than 5 miles from PhoViet for the past 15 years or better and never tried it. I will have to stop this week. I have a few places downtown that I regularly get pho, vermacheli salad or bahn mi so this is right up my alley.

    Let us know how it compares, Chris. I had a Vietnamese coworker that said this was the best he’s had. Better than his parent’s too.

    Strib has an article in today’s Taste section proclaiming Pho 400 in New Brighton the best pho in town. Others recommended were Quang Restaurant and Pho 79 on Nicollet in Minneapolis. Review was Jon Cheng.

    It is so good. I had my first taste of it in Vietnam while serving there in 68-69. I’ve never forgotten how good it was.

    I haven’t tried Pho 400 yet but Quangs and Pho 79 are really good. Another good one downtown is Come Pho Soup. The later one varies a bit from traditional stuff and has some flavors that a re a bit unusual but are excellent and great noodle bowl and bohn mi also.

    What was the place In pine. That is close to me and I have never tried pho so I’d give it a whirl

    Lotus Thai Cuisine would be my guess.

    My first attempt every making pho at home. Turned out pretty good. It’s no quangs but it was good. I followed this recipe. Used soup bones I got from the cow I got from Will this year. Will definitely be making this again

    Love the stuff. I have pho every week before my Frogtown Curling league, sometimes multiple times a week.

    You guys should also try Hu Tieu if the restaurant serves it. It’s the pork broth variety of pho.

    I highly recommend Trieu Chau Restaurant, one block east of Dale and University. Dynamite egg rolls, fantastic soup, and owner, Min, is hilarious. Chatty SOB, he loves nice Canadian whisky, Redbreast is his favorite.

    Nothing better than a big bowl of Pho on a Minnesota winter day.

    I did add some of each. I had already stirred it up before I took the picture.

    Pelican Rapids has a place that makes Pho that’s pretty good, but occasionally they are out of short ribs so you have to try different meat. It so good on cold days though, the colder it is the more spice you add.

    Had a great bowl of pho at Tony Nguyen in Appleton last Sat. In addition to the usual chili oil, sriracha and other condiments on the table they had what they called dragon sauce. It was freshly made in house and so good. The server couldn’t believe my wife and I loved it. She said it was too spicy for her and most of the customers. Gotta give my vote to spring rolls with peanut sauce over egg rolls too.

    Due to the pronunciation, there are quite a few restaurants named Pho King. There’s one in southern WI call Pho King Awesome.

    I have the idea of one day opening a Restaurant. My idea for the name is Pho and the Ugly Dumpling. I love me some Soup Dumplings. If you have never tried Asian Soup dumplings and get the chance, do so. They are yummy. Wish there was a place near here to get them. There are 100’s of places in Chicago to get them. May be the only good thing about Chicago – All the great food available.

    Soup dumplings are great but make sure you’re careful when they first get to the table. I imagine it’s like sticking your tongue in a fryer which I have avoided so far. I know some people nip off a piece and pour the juice into a spoon but I prefer to go one bite when they cool down.

    I had a great beef pancake at Shang’s Artisan Noodle in Las Vegas’ Chinatown a couple months ago that was like a scallion pancake with the insides of a soup dumpling. It took forever to cool enough to eat. Thankfully I had the spicy Dan Dan Noodle with house made knife cut noodles to keep me busy. Amazing meal and pretty cheap.
