Pho is a Vietnamese soup consisting of broth, rice noodles, herbs, and meat. Pho is indisputably the national dish of Vietnam.  Its popularity grew so much that it’s now served in restaurants all over the world, including the “Sweetest City in Texas.” Below we have included some of our favorite places to get pho and a recommendation for each.

The Pho Shack is a must while in Sugar Land. The pho has a wide appeal because of its complex broth, delicate meats, and delicious noodles. The restaurant owner uses his personal broth recipe that takes about 14 hours to prepare. When ordering their beef noodle soup, you have the option to order two meats, which consist of prime ribeye, fatty, brisket, meatballs, or tendon. A tip: Don’t miss their grilled pork sandwich, grilled lemongrass pork, toasted baguette, cucumber, pickled carrots, pickled daikon radish, cilantro, jalapeno, and French mayo.
