Just wanted to add a quick post on Pho Ha, where I had Sunday lunch. A line snaked out the door, but the mere ten minute or so wait was well worth it, for between the two of us, we feasted on a big bowl of steaming pho, a pork chop rice plate that was just perfect, simple and tasty, and spring rolls...all for about $15!
And FYI, you can be as loud as you feel like being and no one would turn a head. Maybe that won't suit some 'hounds, but it's just all a part of the dining hall experience at Pho Ha. Lots of families with kids. Lots of big round tables, but smaller ones too for those who dine in pairs.
Just another excellent chowhound destination on the Avenue of the Eats, Washington Ave.
