Pho Vie II – Garden Grove (714) 539-5224

Pho Vie II – Garden Grove (714) 539-5224 – 10120 Westminster Ave, 92843

Another Pho shop that seems to be related to Pho Thanh. It is notable because it was one of the first to have the 50% Pho Ga special. A good deal for a bowl of Vietnamese style chicken noodle soup. Still, my favorite hands down is Pho 86 since the broth doesn’t seem to be as oily there.

Pho Thanh – Westminster (714) 839-9882

Posted by k on September 9, 2008

Pho Thanh – Westminster (714) 839-9882 – 9625 Bolsa Ave, 92683

This Pho noodle restaurant opens 24 hours so late night party’ers can come here if they are craving a bowl of Pho. Usually Pho late at night is saltier than a fresh batch in the morning because the broth has been stewing for quite a while. Watch that sodium intake! Recently a number of Pho shops are offer a 50% off deal since there are a gazillion Pho restaurants in Westminster. This place offers 50% off of Pho Ga (Fuh Gaah) which is the Chicken Noodle soup from 8 am to 8 pm. Still, my favorite Pho Ga shop is still Pho 86.

Pho Bach Yen – Garden Grove – (714) 636-3016

Posted by k on February 10, 2008

Pho Bach Yen, Garden Grove – (714) 636-3016, 9786 Westminster, 92844

One of the best deals for Pho around, free drink, nuoc mat, (nook mak), free appetizer rolls: Nem Nuong (Num Noong) – Spring rolls (not fried egg rolls). Rice paper sheets wrapped around lettuce, mint, pork with a peanut dipping sauce, and finally free sweet bean dessert, che (jair) 

Pho (Fuh) – Most popular noodle soup of Vietnam. Rice noodle with meat usually beef, onion, ginger broth, beansprouts, lime, and basil. There are hundreds of Pho noodle shops and each one depends on personal tastes.

A common misconception is that you have to drink all the broth in the entire soup thus Pho is too filling of a meal. But in reality most people just eat the noodles and meat and leave a large portion of the broth uneaten. Pho broth is very fatty by the way so it is unhealthy to drink it in large amounts on a daily basis.

Pho Nguyen Hue – Westminster (714) 839-8916 – 10487 Bolsa Ave, 92683

Some people like Pho Nguyen Hue for the low prices and value for money. They give generous portions but the lack of cleanliness is a turn off for me.

Pho 86 – Garden Grove (714) 531-0512

Posted by k on January 25, 2008

Pho 86 – Garden Grove (714) 531-0512 – 10528 McFadden Ave, 92843, closed on Tuesdays

This is absolutely my favorite Pho place for Chicken Pho (Fuh Gaah) with the big noodles (Bun Lun). However, it is literally the roach motel. Not too long ago, a kind patron tapped my shoulder while I was engrossed in eating my favorite soup and pointed to my feet – a large cockroach was scuttling across my shoes. If bugs don’t bother you then it’s worth it, anyway, the soup is boiled at such a high temperature that the flies would die if they fell in your soup, heck, it’s protein.
