Ok let me start by saying I am a pho addict. If it was my last supper, this is what I'm eating. I'm super critical and from Australia which means we are blessed with amazing Vietnamese food. From all accounts Pho Bang is the best pho in NYC, so considering the reputation that New York has in the culinary world, I was looking forward to what should have been an amazing bowl of soup. But it was not.
Noodles: grainy. Had a really Singapore noodle texture, nothing silky about them at all.
Broth: horrible. It genuinely tasted like powdered beef stock was used.
Chilli: no heat whatsoever
Garnishes: not brilliant
Overall I was really disappointed with this Pho. I didn't get a chance to try any others in the city so can't compare, but I really can't recommend this place. Normally pho is good even when it is bad, but I can't say that for pho bang.
