Pho for Beginners....
A great spot for Pho, but for the discriminating new to the I District traveler...I wouldn't call it spotless...at least as far as far as things like the ladies room go.
But for the adventurous, it's got great Pho! There's a photo menu and you can start with something as straightforward as Steak Pho (thin silced steak) in a great meat broth with rice noodles. It comes with a side of bean sprouts, a sprig of basil, and a wedge of lime. If there's two of you. plan to share it. You can also get minced fresh cilantro if you ask...for free!
Starter big bowls are just under $5. Not much on atmosphere, but everyone is served quickly and the food is fresh and good. Be prepared to ask for refills on water and skip the no-meat pho, it tastes like pho bullion!
