If you are looking for a cleaner establishment to savor the national dish, hop right into Pho 10. Here you will find proper tables and chairs instead of tiny stools and wooden tables. The laminated menu was easy to read with English translation for all the 10 different varieties of beef Pho.
Pho 10 is located at 10 Ly Quoc Su Street, opposite Nguyen Sinh.
The kitchen windows were fogged up by the steam from the vats and bubbling stock. I can't imagine how hot is it to work inside the enclosed kitchen area.
Limes are often used in Vietnamese dishes to accent the food flavors. Never forget to squeeze an entire wedge of lime into your Pho.
These serrano chili have a "delayed fuse" as it takes a moment to fully kick in when it hits the palate. Add a few slices of serrano chili if you enjoy spicy Pho.
Tai Nam (35,000 VND ~ RM5.11) - To avoid over cooking the beef, always order half done beef and submerge any beef that are still pink. This bowl of half done flank beef was flawless. The broth was sweeter than Pho Gia Truyen, but I much preferred the noodles there, as it is silkier than Pho 10. Don't forget to hop over to Nguyen Sinh when you are done with your meal!
Verdict: TOTALLY SMITTEN
