Simply Vietnam seems to be the best Pho in the Northbay at this time. I enjoyed a very good bowl of Pho today with some relatives. We all had Pho, two extra larges and one large. The extra large was just a dollar more, they are huge. I brought half home. My brother is a huge eater and did not finish his, his son, a big guy himself, barely finished his large.
Ok, so the bowls are big, but the broth meet my brother's number one priority, he loved it. I thought the broth was outstanding also. The noodles were not a mushy mess and all stuck together. Tons of meat, and the best tendon I have had anywhere. Fresh veggies, with a fair amount of basil for this time of the year, no brown sprouts, nice juicy lime, and the jalapenos were hot. All the usual condiments present.
Service was quick to seat us, take our order, and serve us as well. The place was re-opened about 3.5 months ago. It's nicely redecorated, very clean. Prices are inexpensive. The place is busy, many Asians in attendance, for good reason I believe.
I really like this place and hope to explore more on their menu.
They are on Dutton just south of College.
Btw, $5.75 for a large, $6.75 for a extra large.
