There was a bowl of chilli peppers on the table before we arrived. Of course, such a thing would tempt someone to eat them raw.
#3 small beef brisket and rare beef pho ($6)
The beef was indeed rare, and it was also soft. I liked the strong flavour of the broth, and the noodles were pretty filling.
Would I return? Sure. The pho is decently priced and has good flavour. Service is efficient, as it is in many Asian places.
