This 15-year-old institution is revered for its simple, flavorful pho ga. Though owner Steven Nghai Pham relocated his original restaurant into this larger, spiffier Tenderloin storefront in 2013, the unfussy chicken pho recipe remains the same: piping hot, gingery broth, a generous serving of free-range poached chicken and a tangle of slick rice noodles garnished with fresh cilantro and chilies. The handmade rice noodles here are a work of art—thicker and chewier than the usual vermicelli. The hearty pho ga is purported to be a surefire cure for the common cold.
