Where can I find the best Pho in Boston
Looking for the most authentic, clean, consistently good Vietnamese restaurant..
Try this post for starters:
Among the Chinatown options, I've tried Pho Pasteur and Pho Hoa. Pho Pasteur gets my vote between the two. Haven't tried Xinh Xinh yet but most folks in the thread above seem to prefer it the best. I'll probably make it my next stop for pho. Pho Viet in the Allston Super 88 is passable most days if you're really craving it and you're close by, but usually the broth just isn't deep enough and has too much of that pre-lime-juiced taste. Good bahn mi, though. I don't know too much else about other pho outside of Chinatown...
Best: Pho Pasteur Chinatown, Pho 2000
OK: Le's, Xinh Xinh, Pho Hoa Dorchester
Not good: Pho Viet's, Pho Hoa Chinatown
7 Beach St, Boston, MA 02111
Pho 2000 Restaurant
198 Adams St, Dorchester, MA 02122
1095 Commonwealth Ave, Boston, MA 02215
Pho Pasteur Restaurant
682 Washington St, Boston, MA 02111
I had the "pho ga" at the Momogoose truck on Friday. It was good, but pho it ain't. It didn't have the same depth of flavor in the broth that pho has, and the flavor profile was totally different. It was very reminiscent of the chicken noodle soup that is often on the menu at Thai restaurants. I enjoyed it, but I think calling it "pho" is a stretch.
