I had to use that as the title - the Pho really is delicious.
We met some family members at Ha Long Bay for dinner at their suggestion. I enjoy Vietnamese food, and always look for something different. As with most restaurants like this, it is located in a small strip center and is sparsely furnished with they typical. Tables are nothing fancy but this place was well lit and open.
My wife had the vegetable Pho and I had the Beef. I truly think that she did "better", as it was delivered choked full of veggies while I had lots of broth and noodles. Yes, the vegetable came tot he table on a separate plate that you add to your Pho as you choose and yes, they were fresh. But they were somewhat limited - bean sprouts, basil and sliced jalapeños.
The broth was delicious and what pleased me most was the apparent absence of msg and high amounts of salt. Yes, there is salt in the broth and there really has to be. Thankfully, it wasn't like many places and I didn't have any of the typical swelling issues normally associated with such things.
Dinner for the four of us was right around $40, which was outstanding. No one left hungry and we were all pleased with our meals.
Go and enjoy!
