Best pho restaurants in NYC
This charming MacDougal Street mainstay dispatches nine types of Vietnamese sandwiches and vermicelli bowls to nearby bargoers and NYU students alike. The simple bill of fare also includes eight varieties of pho, including a tofu-based vegetarian version, a classic sliced beef and the house special: three cuts of beef and slices of Vietnamese ham mingling with fresh herbs in a surprisingly fiery orange broth.
For Bò Cà Phê, home is that crowded dining enclave known as Soho’s Petrosino Square. Its menu centers around Vietnamese rice noodle salads, or bò bún, as they’re referred to in French, a near-perfect dish for the health obsessed. Bò Cà Phê builds its version using gluten-free rice noodles, sprouts, carrots, cucumber, fresh herbs, a lean protein of choice and dressing on the side.
