Pho in the East Vil?

2slices Apr 5, 2010 08:28 AM

Just moved to Ave C and 8th after living 2 blocks from Pho Bang for 7+ years. Walking there would know take 30 mins at least. Anywhere decent between Houston and 14th?

    sorry this wont help but i dont recommend the pho at baogeutte. i think youre best off just trekking over to chinatown.

      There's a new vietnamese restaurant that opened up on 2nd avenue in the old SEA Thai spot called Le Da Nang. I think they have Pho on the menu but I haven't been there and don't know much about it.

      ... maybe you could try it and report back?

        I went to Pho 32 & Shabu (13 St. Marks) on Saint Marks a while back. It wasn't groundbreaking (I've had Pho in Vietnam), but it wasn't bad for the 'hood.

          While not within walking distance, many of the Chinatown Vietnamese places will deliver to you at your new address. I live nearby(ish) and have been enjoying Seamlessweb pho delivery from Xe Lua.

            Oh how I wished I lived within delivery of c-town. The best pho I can get delivered is from Bao Noodles. *sigh* Count yourself lucky.

              all the years i lived next to c-town the only good chinese place that delivered was congee village. Pho Bang did deliver, but i never ordered pho delivery, worried the noodles wouldbe ruined, even tho they send it seperate from the soup. Nyonya delivered too if u count that as C-town.

            If I am feeling lazy AND craving pho, I go to plump dumpling on 11th and 2nd. There are definitely better places to get pho, but it's not bad and it's very close to home for me. I would never order it to go, I can't imagine it would hold up. I always ask that they add the beef raw so it doesn't overcook.
