Fragrant pho is the star attraction at this sassy red-walled eatery that serves the famed noodle soup in red bowls filled to the brim. There are eight variations on the theme: if rare beef doesn’t take your fancy, opt for free-range chook, seafood or beancurd. A regular bowl, with herbs, sprouts, chilli and lemon on the side, makes a filling meal. Offshoot venue Pho PHD around the corner at 260 Marrickville Road serves a gargantuan extra-large pho. In a non-pho mood? Chow down on fresh ricepaper rolls with prawn or a crunchy mountain of Vietnamese salad draped with beancurd slices.
