Best Pho in the City – Despite being a small chain, Pho 75 is the BEST Pho I've ever had. I've tried most of the Pho places in the city, and every single time I say why didn't I just go to 75. (Except for the old Pho Ba Le that closed, which had the BEST grilled chicken pho on earth).
There is zero ambiance, it's very utilitarian with pink tables and linoleum floors. But when I go out to eat, food is #1 above anything else. I always order a large Tai Chin (#12 Beef Round Eye and Brisket). The large will be gigantic, but the small is not much smaller, just with less meat so you may as well get the large and take the rest home.
The fixins are the usual, but it's the broth that makes the pho. The broth is nicely flavored without all my usual add ins and the meat is thinly sliced and tender with minimal fat content. Their service is very quick, so you won't be waiting long for a steaming bowl of goodness. And if you need any additional fixins they will bring it to you without hesitation.
My only complaint is that the prices have gone up in the years, and they now charge a little extra for take-out. If you do get take-out they give you the same amount of fixins and will include hoisin and Sriracha.
I do recommend that you always add everything to your pho (hosin, pepper oil, Sriracha, fish sauce, bean sprouts, lime, Thai basil, cilantro, and jalapeno) as it's never quite as spectacular when eaten as is. Oh boy, I'm salivating now!
