It’s all about the pho here. It’s nothing fancy to look at, but pho true-schoolers will tell you that’s how it’s supposed to be. This Vietnamese soup is traditionally a working-class street food, and, well, Mekong Delta doesn’t exactly exude glitz. But, oh my, the pho is stellar. Go for the pho dac biet, which is strips of rare and well-done beef, meatballs, and translucent tendon pieces; if it sounds gross, just take our word that tendon will become a new favorite taste. Mekong Delta is still a small operation, so waits are a possibility, especially during lunch, but it’s plenty worth it.
