How's the Pho @ Natural Tofu in Sunnyside?

While I like their soon dobu, I'm curious how good is the pho? I find that Pho only comes in good better and best. I've never eaten one that I flat out don't like. So how's it there, and if u know of other options I'd LOVE to hear them.

  1. I tried it last month. It is a huge bowl (really) full of soup with all of the condiments and garnishes for $7.00. The broth would fall in the good category, not better or best. There are much more noodles and much less meat than a regular bowl at any of the Vietnamese places.

    1. What is the pho listed as on the menu? "Vietnamese noodles?"

        "Vietnamese Rice Noodle: Rice noodle, Bean Sprout, Cilantro, Meat Ball, Lemon, Mexican Pepper $7.00"

      2. Try the spicy seafood pancake, and the bbq squid. YUM.

          I just tried it last night. As stated above, it's decent when you are craving a bowl of Pho in the 'hood and don't want to trek out to Elmhurst/Flushing (though I greatly prefer Pho from those places). The pho at BCD came with a TON of noodles, almost too much. The broth is decent, nothing to write home about. I ended up putting in a ton of hoisin sauce, the red pepper hot sauce and Siracha sauce, so it was nice and spicy. The meatballs were an interesting addition, the sliced meat was good. It also comes with the plate of bean sprouts, a couple of japaleno slices, and cilantro.

            sounds good enough for me.
            thanks all.
