Scanning the other tables, it’s evident that people are diving into various choices, but the tried-and-true staple here is the Pho. Personally, I went all-in for the premium beef pho. This deluxe version comes loaded with brisket, raw pork shoulder, and marbled brisket, giving the broth an even richer depth of flavor. The broth is that perfect balance of refreshing and robust, without going overboard. Now, the fried rice noodles, they’re a bit reminiscent of Pad Thai, but with a tiny twist โ€“ they’re a tad sweeter than Pad Thai. These petite noodles strike a brilliant harmony between soup and stir-fry. Oh, and there’s wine on the menu, but I went for a Vietnamese beer, and let me tell you, I didn’t know pho and beer were such a dynamic duo.

This spot boasts a diverse menu that won’t disappoint. If you find yourself in Yeouido, it’s a must-visit. The owner is super friendly, and the overall experience hits the mark. They used to source their rice noodles from a local Vietnamese company, but due to the extended COVID crisis, that’s changed. However, the substitute noodles are equally satisfying for the time being. The broth here is a labor of love, simmered daily by boiling Korean beef bones and eight aromatic spices for over 12 hours. Just a word of advice: it’s not advisable to swing by too late in the evening, as they close up shop when they run out of the day’s stock to preserve the impeccable flavor. The interior transports you to Vietnam, radiating an exotic atmosphere. You’ll find bar tables and regular seating, but space is a tad limited overall. On weekdays, there’s parking available in the building, but come the weekend, you’ll need to park in front of the shop.
