Pho in Tokyo? 2013/4/23 01:18
Viet Nam
I am looking some good Vietnamese Pho in Tokyo. Please don't say Com Pho. I didn't like it at all.

I am from Cali. We have a lot of Pho restaurants and I really miss it (Especially the Sriracha Chili Sauce). Please feel free to share it if you know any places. Thanks!

I don't know where in Tokyo you are, but I sometimes go there for lunch and I like this place :)

I like that place too. Also, Banh Xeo Saigon in Nishi-Shinjuku does a nice pho: http://bento.com/rev/3806.html

Thanks AK! I will check it out. I have been to Banh Xeo Saigon, but I think it was okay. I miss the beef broth soup. Anyone else?

Huong Viet & Mi Le 2013/4/25 22:19
shhk88,

I'm not sure if I understand what you are looking for. I don't know where Cali is and Sriracha sauce is a Thai sauce, not Vietnamese.

But if you're seeking for authenticy, Huong Viet and Mi Le have been the two Vietnamese restaurants that have kept their reputation for authentic Vietamese cuisine in Tokyo for more than 2 decades. The websites might not show beef pho, but I'm sure they serve it. Phone in advance to make sure. The owners are and speak Vietnamese (but not English).

(Cali is California. Or, less likely, the third-largest city in Colombia.)

Thanks, Umami. I don't know much about American style Vietnamese food, though.

Well there's a big Vietnamese immigrant community in California, so there's a lot of choice - some of it pretty good.

Thanks for the Tokyo recommendations by the way - I've heard good things about both of them, but haven't tried either yet.

I was actually curious about this too.

When I go to Japan this fall, I wanted to try Vietnamese food over there so I can compare to it at home.

Besides being able to try pho in Japan, it'll give me a chance to speak to someone since I speak Vietnamese and English.

I will definitely try to visit on of these locations!

I walked past a Vietnamese place in Komagome the other day - on Hongo dori going towards Kyu Furukawa from Komagome station - very close to a gyoza shop.

We opted for gyoza, so I don't know how good the VN is.

I was in Ekoda the other day and it had two Vietnmanese restaurants. I went to the ever dependable Israeli Shamaim, and not the Vietnamese, but it'd be worth trying if you're in the area.

We know that there are dozens and dozens of Vietnamese restaurants all over Tokyo - I think the OP was looking for recommendations of places people had actually been to, eaten the pho, and enjoyed it.

Re: Pho in Tokyo? 2013/7/10 00:52
first of all, the california/american pho is a bit different from the original in nam, as well as the bahnmi and whatever in between.. so it'll be slightly different. but either way i've had good viet in japan
