Pho Basil


Located on Mass Avenue, Pho Basil specializes in healthy dishes of Vietnamese classics alongside authentic Thai—so it’s no surprise that we happily sing the virtues of its namesake pho.

No less than sixteen varieties of pho are served up here, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to experiment.For starters, check out the rib curry noodle—braised pork ribs in tomato curry broth with quail egg, sour mustard, dry chili, fried scallion, and fried garlic topped with cilantro and scallion.

The chan chua—mildly hot and sour with a choice of chicken, shrimp, catfish, or salmon with bean sprouts, pineapple chunk, tomato, celery, and basil leaves in aromatic spicy tamarind broth, served with steamed white rice on the side—is delicious as well.

You can’t go wrong with a classic dac biet: famous Vietnamese beef noodle soup with rare steak, well-done flank, tendon, and tripe.
