Anyone been to Pho Pasteur?
The last time I drove by there, there was a crowd waiting, but it also has a C rating. So I was deterred from going in. Is it worth it to give that place a try?
How does Pho Pasteur compare to Golden Deli?
depending on what i feel like eating, i go to either pho pasteur or golden deli. don't let the C rating deter you. i've never gotten sick.
fried eggrolls: golden deli
rice vermicelli: pho pasteur, by far. i usually come for this.
rice dishes: golden deli
pho: pho pasteur has really fatty brisket. seems to be a bigger bowl at pho pasteur.
pho pasteur has more tables but you still frequently have to wait for a spot on weekends. it's really busy in there: waiters and waitresses are running around like crazy. nicer decorations.
suspect that it may be part of a chain that's on the east coast as well, but i've never gotten this verified.
i agree with bigpig.
for egg rolls = golden deli
for pho = golden deli
for a shorter wait at a restaurant just as good as golden deli = brodard
definitely try the House Special Fried Fish Cake - it's awesome. Served with lettuce & fixins + fish sauce.
