Pho restaurants in this town come and go. But Pho Dien has gained that word-of-mouth fame that has people lined up for a steaming bowl of beef noodle soup every afternoon. This place serves the real deal, with broth simmered for hours to give it that fragrant aroma and smooth, deep flavor that wins every time. The toppings here are of consistently high quality, especially the tai uop (marinated carpaccio). Service is fast and efficient, and though a wait is the norm during peak lunch hours, it never exceeds 30 minutes and is always worth it.
