The Best Pho Restaurants In Ho Chi Minh City For Over 50 Years

Pho Le

Hands down my number 1 go-to Pho in Ho chi Minh City, or maybe even Vietnam (at the moment)! Since I have only eaten Pho in HCMC, Hanoi, Tay Ninh, domain authority Nang, and Hoi An. There are still so many other cities in Vietnam that I have not yet try their Pho!

Everytime I can’t wait lớn mix in all the vegetables và sauces, and eat that spoonful of pho, meat, vegetables, & broth! Only one word to lớn describe it after that spoonful, “SHIOK”!

I can feel the slight oiliness và meaty taste in both the the (fatty) beef và broth base, refreshing và fresh herbal taste from the vegetables and squeezed lime, & finally the kick of both the chili sauce & chopped chili padi mix to provide the total umami of this dish!

Some of my thoughts:

Broth - Very flavorful, you can taste the bone (both pork and beef?) and variety of herbs & spices infused to the broth, probably been cooked for a long time (maybe 1 day?)

Meat - Meat is fresh, fatty lớn lean meat ratio is balanced, & meat thickness is sliced just nice

Vegetables - Fresh, so the broth can extract the taste when mixed (very important for me)

Quick tip for ordering Pho for specific cuts of meat:

Tai - Raw Beef

Nam - Beef Flank

Bo Vien - Beef Meatball

Gan - Beef Tendon

Thap Cam - phối of all 4

You can set any 2 cuts also, like I normally eat Tai Nam.

This is a personal taste và opinion, I vị feel to lớn get a more authentic local eating style, I will phối in the different vegetables, chili và hoisin sauce, freshly chopped chili padi mix, & squeezed lime. Most importantly I enjoy this taste. For those who can’t eat spicy, can just skip the chili part.

If it’s your first time eating, you can always eat a couple spoonful without mixing in first, và then later mixing in all, so you can see which style you prefer more!

In my opinion, their chất lượng and standards are consistent, prices went up a bit (minimal) throughout the years, but I feel the meat seems to be lesser amount from my recent visit compared to lớn previous years. One improvement is that they have aircon now.
