Pho in the Loop?

I crave this stuff for lunch all the time, but I'm unaware of any Vietnamese eateries in the Loop. It seems that pho is a natural lunch dish, but I can't seem to find any and it's driving me crazy, so if anybody knows of any places - particularly on or around LaSalle (i'm at LaSalle and Madison), I'd be most grateful to hear about it. Thanks.

  1. This is what bugs me about the loop in Chicago: you'd think pho would be a natural and make somebody a ton of money, but it's just not here.

    The only thing I can think of is Oodles of Noodles, but I've not been there.

    1. There is a place that sells Pho ... (beef noodle soup) but a far cry from Argyle's standard!!!

      804 N State St, Chicago 60610

        I absolutely hated Quang Noodles. The broth was incredibly bland and reminded me more of glue soup than my beloved pho. If anyone knows of pho in the loops, I'd be eternally grateful.

          Ditto on Quang. There used to be a vietnamese place on Wabash, but they've been closed for years.

        1. Saigon Sisters in the recently opened Chicago French Market serves the best I've had in Chicago.
