So, I was listening to Pacific Time last night, and there was a report about a Pho place in Hanoi called Pho Cali. The program talked a little about the history of Pho, and what goes into it, and all of a sudden I got a powerful urge to go devour a big bowl of it.
Thing is, I’ve never had Pho before. When I lived in LA, I was blessed to live close to the Little Tokyo area by Sawtelle, and so I ate the most amazing Ramen constantly, 3 times a week, at least. Actually, it’s one of the only things I miss about LA. Next time you’re in the area, try to find Ramen Ya, and order the meatballs. Oh. my. god.
So, anyway, back to the point. I need to know: Where should I go to get good Pho? City suggestions are welcome, but if you can recommend good places in the East Bay, near Oakland or Berkeley, I would be forever in your debt. Pho sure.
