Best Pho and Worst Pho I've had

kare_raisu | Jan 6, 2011 10:18 AM

Succumbing to a cold twice this winter so far, I've been on the Pho beat.

So far the best broth that I've come across has been at Pho on 5th Ave. I like that everything tastes fresh here and the quality is high - though that can be said of the price as well. Their meats are good especially the brisket and tendon. I almost always leave happy here. And my favorite waiter from Saigon now works here.

The worst I've ever had in San Diego was at Pho Convoy about a week or two ago. I actually took a few tastes and asked for the check and left. Broth was bland and msg laden - the meats were really questionable - as far as their age and seemed freezer burned. Their goi cuon's sliced boiled pork seemed to verge on rancid.

I've yet to be Lucky Pho - thats next on the list.
