Best Forceful Pho (2008)
PHO NAM BO
The broth for the tour-de-force Vietnamese soup called pho is a long-boiled stock in the French tradition, and nobody in town makes it better than PHO NAM BO, unexpectedly located in Bensonhurst, reflecting the diaspora of Viet restaurants from Chinatown five years ago. The huge bowl comes with rice noodles and your choice of thin-sliced beef cuts. Throw in the sprouts and herbs that come on the side, and your meal will be complete.
