Pho Ly Quoc Su
10 Ly Quoc Su, Hoan Kiem
VND45,000 to VND70,000
Another pho restaurant in the top three, the fresh look and feel of the pho here makes a bowl of the good stuff perfect for the morning diner. The broth is clear, clean and tasty, although a bit salty for some. But the stock still maintains that true taste of beef bone braised for long hours. “The broth tastes really different,” said Tu. “Maybe it’s due to this family’s secret way of selecting the right seasoning.” The beef here is another plus point — tender and perfectly sliced.
The eatery is clean and compared to other joints, more upmarket. But the ‘bring ‘em in, throw ‘em’ out food chain mentality can be off-putting, especially in such a cramped space. With customers waiting for unoccupied tables, diners get the impression they’re expected to eat up and leave quickly. While the noodles were a bit bland, the quay was the best we tasted. Price-wise this joint is a bit expensive, but acceptable for its quality.
