Pho #1, as the name may suggest, is one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in the Baltimore area. The menu includes a large variety of traditional Vietnamese dishes and fresh fruit drinks. The best bargain is a bowl of pho, a traditional Vietnamese beef and noodle soup.
I had the pleasure to go to Pho #1 for lunch this afternoon and I ordered my favorite bowl of pho. The restaurant allows you to garnish your bowl with cilantro, lime, bean sprouts, and jalapeño peppers any way you like. The broth is bold and addicting and the noodles are cooked to perfection. You can taste the subtle sweetness of the onions and bean sprouts in contrast to the taste of the broth.
Even though the #1 in its title suggests the year the restaurant was established (2001), this restaurant might just be the number one pho shop in Baltimore. The speedy service sure doesn't hurt. Pho #1 has definitely kept me going back again and again for the delicious meals.
