No matter how far out we travel for what friends or acquaintances dub the best pho, we cannot find an equal to Pho Nam right in our own backyards. And we simply don’t see how pho could get too much better than this. Indeed, this may be the problem, as Pho Nam seems to have isolated that which makes pho good into its product, while other places add to and adorn their own. The broth is immaculately clean and beefy, just nuanced enough with aromatics, and the noodles fresh and tender but still slightly chewy. Garnishes are always beautiful, and the pho is dirt cheap. The end.
