The oxtail soup at Pho Lu isn’t actually made from oxtails. It’s something more like shank, cooked “meltingly tender,” says groover808.

The order comes in two bowls: one with noodles and broth, and a separate bowl with the meat. It’s enormous—a large order is almost enough for two.

groover808 keeps returning to Pho Lu’s version of oxtail pho over some of the other versions in town that involve real oxtail. Pho Lu’s faux oxtail is actually cleaner and less fatty than a true oxtail soup would be. Also, it’s not on the menu. Just ask for “pho dui bo.”
