I had pho today for lunch at Nem Nuong Khanh Hoa, corner of Valley and Marengo, in Alhambra. I had never been there before. It was the only place where I could find parking *and* a quiet place to sit for pho on the stretch of Valley Blvd., between the city of Rosemead and Alhambra, during lunch time. Every other place (and parking lot) was super crowded. I drove by dozens of places. I thought maybe because it was less crowded, it might be bad. The service was fast and friendly. The soup broth was very flavorful. I enjoyed it very much. I had a bowl of the combination pho soup with beef, tendon, fishballs and everything in it, plus a fresh lemonade soda for less than $7. I usually cannot finish a whole bowl of pho, but I nearly finished this one. It was very good. :) I thought it was better than Saigon Flavor, Saigon Noodle and Indochine, all of which I have been to in the last couple of months. I'm sure there are many other great places in the same area.
