I go for Vietnamese Phở more in the winter time, than the rest of the year, so I thought I'd recommend one of my favorite places to go on Queen Anne. I think everyone has a favorite in each neighborhood in Seattle. I'm mentioning Pho Viet Anh at 372 Roy Street, because that's the place I'll go during the work week with my co-workers.
I think more than anything, the key to a good Phở is the broth. There's nothing more unsatisfying than a weak broth, let me tell ya. I ordered the vegetarian soup last time, thinking to myself that I hope it wasn't just like water and veggies, and it wasn't. Far from it. The broth was heaven! I even tasted my friend's chicken stock broth, and the veggie one was just as fulfilling and rich in flavor.
Funny thing is, every time I go here, I usually get their Rice Vermicelli Noodles, because it's just too tempting and too good. This time, it was rainy and miserable out, and I had to go for the soup. It was delicious, and I will continue to go back to Pho Viet Anh as long as they have one of the best bowls of soup in town!
