(55 Nguyễn Cư Trinh, Hồ Chí Minh)
This Phô place was basically 30 meters from my Airbnb and came highly recommended by a friend. I blindly walked across the road confronting a million scooters all swaying wildly around me, the hangover shaking off the last dregs of fear, and seated myself at the back away from as many people as possible. The bowl arrived within a couple of minutes and at first glance it looked decent.
Looks can be deceiving. This was one of the more mediocre Phô I ever ate in Vietnam. The broth was wish-washy, no real structure or depth of flavour to it. The meat was chewy and the noodles were basic.
Not worth risking life and limb crossing major roads in Vietnam for.
