In a neighborhood with plenty of standout pho spots, Pho 45 is an institution in its own right and very much worth going to. The broth here is uniquely dark, savory, and meaty - without the immense fragrance you typically find in most pho - and that’s exactly why we like it. All their rare meats are of high quality, but if you aren’t asking for the filet mignon, you’re doing it wrong. On those arctic days when the thermometer dips below 65 degrees, you will find us here, bent over a gigantic $9 bowl of delicious pho.
