I recently learned that there is an austere version of pho, without all the add-ins, and it is supposedly more akin to the original version. The article said that Hanoi residents look down on all the greenery and sprouts that I have gotten accustomed to. I have also been told that the flavor is stronger in this northern pho. My informant said he didn't know where I could find it locally. He suggested Little Saigon in Westminster, but still didn't have any names.

Is there a restaurant in San Diego that serves this style? Any rec's for Westminster (I'll post in LA too)?
