Toeing the line between swanky hotspot and sophisticated dining destination, this Asian fusion concept from Rockit Ranch Productions is a worthy choice for an undeniably hip meal out in River North. The menu offers some seriously interesting eats (duck breast kimchi, oxtail pot stickers) and includes sushi, sashimi, and plenty of wok dishes. The beer list is heavy on the Asian pours, and there are sake and speciality cocktails as well. Sunda's decor feels just as sleek as the menu with polished black bamboo and high wooden tables.
Traditional foods get the fine dining treatment at this Vietnamese-French fusion restaurant in the Gold Coast -- Its bowl of pho is on the smaller side (be sure to supplement it with a few appetizers or an entrée from the main menu), but is absolutely worth ordering. The oxtail broth lends an elevated yet authentic flavor and the paper-thin slices of beef tenderloin are perfectly cooked.
The pho is the must-try dish here (hence the name). They make it similar to other places, but the broth is a little sweeter. They've got great apps too like Spring rolls and bánh xèo so don't miss those either.
Rejoice: you can score a cheap, authentic bowl of pho without making the trek to Argyle St. L.D. Pho is known for serving large portions and offering up viable beef-less options. Go for the pho ga xe or “shredded chicken noodle soup” if red meat isn’t your thing (we don’t get you but to each their own). Beef pho purists will also be satisfied with the pho tai: a simple, hearty bowl packed with generous pieces of sliced beef.
Head to Pho Viet for delicious, flavorful and criminally under-recognized pho. Just be sure you pronounce the word “pho” properly (phonetical spelling = “fuh”) when you order... and don’t forget to supplement your bowl with a smoothie.
Simple Asian street food is revolutionized with gourmet flavor combos, such as lamb & brandy dumplings and bay scallop soba.
Uptown Pho is an Uptown restaurant that sets itself apart by being one of the most vegetarian-friendly eateries in the area. And while the vegetarian pho is definitely the main attraction here, the banh mi sandwiches are also worth the trip.
Best part of Pho & I? They’ll deliver bowls directly to you, meaning you can slurp one down without changing out of your sweats or venturing out into the snow. Fans of this place rave about the chicken pho, a slightly lighter (but still satisfying) alternative to the usual beef soup.
One of Chicago's most popular spots for pho, this Vietnamese noodle shop's best-seller is a combination of sliced beef, brisket, flank steak, tendon, tripe, and meatballs, loaded with as much basil, bean sprouts, and jalapeños as you want.
After opening a successful stand last year in the French Market, SS is taking their grandma-inspired Vietnamese eats to a modern industrial-chic bistro, with a lofted skylit ceiling overlooking dark wood communal tables and metallic chairs, but not Metall
