Pho near Annapolis

Hi all, my pregnant wife has a hankering for pho. Does anyone know of a place in or near Annapolis? The closest we know of is on 450 in Crofton, behind the Rita's. Saigon Noodle House I think it's called.

      It's there. Viet-Thai Paradise and Saigon Palace in Edgewater. Also Miss Saigon in Glen Burnie. Depending on what you're used to they might be ok. They're all restaurants with somewhat extensive menus. In my experience, the Pho isn't nearly as good at these places as at a dedicated, or nearly dedicated, Pho house. Pho Nam in Catonsville has been my favorite for a while. There are a few decent places in Laurel as well. Pho Saigon 54 and Pho 89.

        Saigon Palace in Edgewater is the best pho in or near Annapolis. I agree that a dedicated place will do a better job but this is the best you're going to get.

        Not sure why this occurred to me, but watch the movie The Ramen Girl over pho ...

      This is a newer Vietnamese restaurant in the area(R3 north, sort of behind KFC) . I have been there for 2 times, they were pretty decent.
      I heard that the chef used to work at Saigon Noodle House.
