Pho Emergency in Columbia Heights!

Help! The SO is craving pho for dinner tonight, and I know of nothing in the Columbia Heights area that has pho. He doesn't want to travel far, so Eat Street, where I work, is out. Ideas?

  1. University Ave, St. Paul. Try I-Pho, the old Saigon restaurant.

      Looks good! But I was hoping for something a bit closer to home. Appreciate the suggestion, tho!

    2. A few miles closer is Pho 79 on Energy Park Drive just inside St. Paul. Its one of my favorites. Very consistent quality.

      Google says its 8 miles and 18 minutes from Columbia Heights.

      1. Pho Tan Phat in Spring Lake Park. The best Pho you can get outside of Eat St. or Frogtown.

        8197 University Ave. About 2 miles north of the Columbia Heights/Fridley border.

          I knew my chow-peeps would come thru. Cheers!

            And don't forget to order the (fried) spring rolls. Those are some of the best that I have had. Ever.
