It’s worth the trek to El Monte to get Pho Huynh’s Northern-style preparation, which means slurping down thicker, wider noodles (versus the thin vermicelli you’re likely accustomed to) and a lighter, clearer broth.
Blossom's doing Vietnamese the right way -- with tangy sweet and spicy punches to great pho, juicy lemongrass steaks, and house-made libations.
This OG strip mallstaurant has been making fragrant broth for years, with a speedy kitchen usually whipping up pho faster than you can figure out how to pronounce your order.
When Mama Hong’s first opened on Wilshire, it received a warm welcome from hungry West LA residents who longed for a decently priced, well-prepared bowl of steaming hot pho with beef brisket. Or a rib eye steak banh mi sandwich. Or even a vermicelli combo with grilled shrimp and egg rolls. This joint's West LA outpost is one of the only pho options in the area, turning out a solid bowl of well-balanced soup, generously topped with various cow parts.
This cash-only restaurant has a wide range of options, ranging from lean chicken to beef ball pho. But the real standouts are their rare steak dishes, where tender, still-pink brisket and flank cook slowly in piping hot soup.
This joint's so-tender-it-falls-off-the-bone oxtail is seriously PHOnomenal. Even better? Complimentary noodle refills - so arrive hungry.
This SGV spot has two size options: regular or, for less than a buck more, the super bowl. Obviously, you’ll opt for the latter, which nabs you extra noodles, cooked to the perfect al dente consistency and served in steaming, marrow-flavored broth.
Their pho is slurpifiably delicious, as are the spring rolls, noodles, and trendy atmosphere.
Fill your belly with the filet mignon pho - which, if you couldn’t tell from the name, is this restaurant’s specialty. Expect melt-in-your-mouth, thin-cut slices of meat and a ginger-infused concentrated broth.
Pho Café's sun-marked exterior makes it easy to miss, but the cash-only restaurant slings epic bowls regardless, which you can wash down with a pretty great variety of Asian beers. Bonus: they're open every day 'til midnight.
