i'm looking for delicious vegetarian pho in manhattan or upper brooklyn. I'm talking spicy, hot and sour, flavorful broth, and a soup packed full of veggies and noodles and tofu. I know pho pasteur has one on the menu (are they related to the boston one), can anyone tell me how it is? any other suggestions? thanks

      I had the vegetarian pho at An Choi, and it was really delicious. I definitely recommend it, but their banh mi wasn't good. However, what I described in my post I later found out is actually Canh Chua Chay, which is kind of like vietnamese tom yum soup, but in my opinion much better. I did a menu pages search and they have it at Pho Pasteur, which if it is related to the Boston one serves the best bowl of soup i've ever had. Nha Trang also has it, and veg. pho on the menu. i'm going to give both of them a try sometime soon. Good luck
