Pho 999

The building isn't much to look at, and the menu is simple: nearly two-dozen kinds of pho, depending on what meats are in the broth. This is not evidence of a lack of imagination. It is a sign of focus. If you want the best pho in Spokane, this is the place. Add the house-made lemongrass and jalapeno sauce in sesame oil for some pleasant spice to your soup. Despite the fame of the pho, it’s difficult every time to pass up the Vietnamese-style pork chop, topped with a fried egg. Go ahead, gnaw on the bone. We know you want to. (May 2013)
