Pho So 1 Randolph?
I'm heading down to Randolph this afternoon as as it's going to be about a million degrees out was planning to stop by Pho So 1 for some bun. However, I saw a mention somewhere that this place is under new management and has gone downhill. Can anyone confirm this?
If it's no longer a good option, what would be my best bet for a vermicelli bowl in the area? Quincy would be fine, probably not up for driving/parking in Dorchester today.
I was there last week, and I didn't see the usual staff there, but the food was up to par. It was Saturday around 2, fairly hot out, and the place was 2/3's filled.
I believe it's the same owner, just a different team. I find the pho tasted cleaner and fresher. The salads had changed a lot though - a giant plate surrounded with prawn crackers but not as much flavor.
Coffee with condensed milk is still the best I've had anywhere!
I actually like the place better now.
I went! It was pretty good. I had grilled pork bun. The pork was excellent, but kind of sparse. I usually can barely finish one of these noodle bowls, but with this one I finished it and was hungry a few hours later. Also it was little on the bland side. Not much in the way of herbs/scallions. Still, it was super tasty and really hit the spot. Thanks!
