THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pho Tau Bay Restaurant Review

: THIS RESTAURANT IS CHANGING LOCATIONS. Pho Tau Bay’s loyal patrons cross the Mississippi River bridge to reach it, but the soups draw dévotées from far and wide (although it would be nice if the bowls were a bit bigger and the servings more generous). One of the best versions features thin beef slices cooked at the table in pots of bubbling broth teeming with noodles, ready for some of the lemon, hot pepper, bean sprouts and herbs supplied in a side basket. We also like the crispy, delicately flavored imperial rolls filled with crab meat, ground pork and vermicelli. Vietnamese-style po' boys, bulging with crisp, raw vegetables and meats, are another specialty, as are spring rolls with a dipping sauce. The sua hot ga somewhat resembles an ice cream soda, if dessert is of interest. The food alone banishes any suggestion of dreariness emanating from the interior of this strip-mall place. Pho Tau Bay's one drawback, besides its out-of-the-way location, may be the inconsistent service.
