  1. Check out Toan Vietnamese Noodle Soup in the Cloverly area of Silver Spring.

    They don't use MSG, but I've heard mixed things about the flavor.

    1. I am pretty sensitive to MSG and so far the one place that agrees with me most is Pho 88 in Beltsville. Try to call there for specific questions about MSG.

        That's funny- Pho 88 is the only place I've had in MD (I had chicken version) when I happened to be by there for a specific store & was in the mood. I spoke to them 1st. I was fine both times there, I was just looking for something closer to home.

        and the bakery next door was pretty good too!
