The city’s latest
The Pho Grand5
Why locals love it
Put simply, pho has become today what sushi was in 1999. Vietnamese cuisine has spread like a wildfire throughout the city, and the broth-based, cinnamon infused rice noodle soup is spearheading the rev(pho)lution. With vegetarian, chicken, beef, and seafood available - there is a pho for every taste.
Why you should visit it
It’s delicious and cheap. You can get two Vietnamese beers and a large bowl of pho for about 16 USD (including tax and tip) - which is almost unheard of in what is consistently cited among the most expensive cities in the world. It is the perfect meal for budget travelers that want to escape the hostel's communal microwave.
Polish off your pho experience with Vietnamese coffee. Served with sweetened condensed milk and brewed before your eyes, its the perfect complement.
