Just had to write up another rec for Pho #1 in North Woburn. This place has become a favorite lunch spot for me and a place we have cater quite a few company lunches too. (They also offer free delivery) Over the past year or more I have had the opportunity to try many of the dishes offered at Pho #1. Overall I have to give high marks to just about everything I have tried. They do a very good Pho of course and offer all the most typical variations. I really enjoy their version of Can Chua, a Vietnamese style sweet and sour soup that includes chunks of fresh tomato, pineapple, and mushrooms along with onions and various herbs. You can order it with chicken, shrimp or salmon too and recently they have started to offer it with rice noodles. I am also a big fan of their Thai style Beef Salad and their Larb Salad which can be ordered with either chicken or pork. Their mango curry is excellent and it too can be ordered with your choice of shrimp, fish or chicken. One of the appetisers I like is called Thit Lui. It is a Vietnamese version of satay but the chicken or beef has been marnited in a something that must have a lot of lemon grass and others herbs. They come two sticks to an order and they are delicious. They taste like they have been grilled over charcoal.

Pho #1IMHO is a real Chowhound type of place. Family owned and operated, nice people and wonderful authentic Thai and Vietnamese food at very reasonable prices. I would encourage anyone to give them a try.
