Village Voice's Description
Skip the pho at this Vietnamese restaurant, which moved from its old home across the street into more luxurious digs, which make you feel like you're in a small, but very well-lit, village. Anything made with beef is worth trying, including a wonderful warm-beef salad (bo luc lac) and fried beef with lemongrass on rice vermicelli (bun bo xao xa). The curries are another good bet, including a chicken curry with potatoes in a fragrant yellow broth (pho carry), which is called "pho," but really bears little resemblance. What's the matter with the pho at Tu Do? The broth is not pungent enough, and tastes too much of cinnamon.
Tips from foursquare
Try the bot chien trieu chau-recipe mires taro sticks in a matrix of egg & rice flour, strewn w. fried shallots, providing crunch/extra flavor, & furnished w. a bowl of a red-wine-vinegar sauce.
If you prefer your hot tea in a tall, plastic soda cup, you've come to the right place.
My go-to Vietnamese place in NYC. The best pho around this neck of the woods.
Enormous portions and really cheap but the broth was bland. Don't ask questions like "what is the salty lemonade" because they'll give you a weird look and respond "salty.... lemonade.."
You can't go wrong with the pho here, but if you're in the mood for something else, try the grilled Beef with rice vermicelli or chicken curry. Delish.
