Vegetarian Pho in Boston?

edify2unify Dec 19, 2011 07:33 AM

Does anyone know where I can get pho with vegetarian broth? I tried one place in Allston but the broth was so bland that it tasted like hot water. After moving from L.A. I can't seem to find a tasty vegetarian pho!

    Pho Pasteur on Washington Street in Chinatown. Click for the menu (see the vegetarian section a few pages in):

      I haven't tried it but because everything else is excellent try Pho Basil on Mass Ave.

      Pho Chay (V) vegetarian noodle soup with fresh tofu and assorted vegetables in vegetarian broth.


      Pho Basil Restaurant
      177A Massachusetts Ave, Boston, MA 02115

          Believe it or not, most of the Boston/Cambridge places that serve pho offer a veggie version. I've gotten it at both Spice and Rice and Ginger Exchange (both in Inman Sq Cambridge), at Pho Lemongrass (Coolidge Corner Brookline), at Le's (Harvard Square Cambridge), etc.
