Pho Thang

9539 SW 160th St. Palmetto Bay, FL 33157 | Cutler Bay/Palmetto Bay | 786-293-1118

Location Description:

At this extremely modest, bare-bones little Vietnamese restaurant, you'll find all the comforts of home-cooking, if few of the creature comforts of home. No matter. For such wholesome, delicious, and blessedly inexpensive food, you won't begrudge the simple décor. Most of the menu is built around noodle soups, pho, and variations with different noodles and proteins. The house special pho is a good one, a tasty and filling bowl with two kinds of beef and tripe. Mi vit quay substitutes roast duck for the beef, and egg noodles for rice noodles, but the satisfaction is just as deep. The rice flour pancake, more like a thick crêpe, is likewise terrific. It comes with shrimp, pork, and the classic Vietnamese accouterments for wrapping crunchy slices in lettuce leaves and dipping in pungent nuoc cham.
