Pho 75 Restaurant Review

: This local restaurant group helped introduce Washingtonians a few years ago to the glories of the Vietnamese soup bowl, the pho. Now pho places are all the rage in the metro area, and the Pho 75 group has grown to four area locations. Who would ever have guessed that so many Westerners would fall in love with this hearty meal-in-a-bowl? The plan is fairly simple, though some soup places also offer other dishes besides. But this group sticks to the basics: order your beef soup with a choice of meat combinations and in small or large bowls. Your order comes with chopsticks, soup spoon, and loads of veggies: It’s up to you to add the chopped chilies, cilantro, and chili sauce to your taste. Then enjoy---and remember, this is popular breakfast food in Vietnam.
