MSG-free (or low) Pho in Boston area?

elcaminogirl | Jan 2, 2008 02:47 PM

Since I was a kid in the suburbs in the '70's, I knew I was allergic to MSG before I'd ever heard of it (ok, I thought I was allergic to Chinese food). That problem's been solved by eating real Chinese food, but what can I do about Pho?

I love pho dearly and sometimes order it and try to only drink a little of the broth (it's so hard to stop!)--but then I feel pretty bad for a while. Does anybody know a place that makes decent pho that is very low in MSG? I'm not deathly allergic or hyper-hyper sensitive, I just need a version that has lower than average (or dare to dream, no) MSG.

Any tips?
