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.  

Pho Ben

Pho Ben serves up a wide range of delicious food. There are two locations within miles of each other. They specialize in serving various Vietnamese special dishes ranging from eggs, pork, beef, chicken, and seafood. One of our favorite pho dishes to order is their Pho Tai Chin. A noodle soup that consists of a rare sliced eye of round steak and lean brisket.

The Pho Shack

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 which takes about 14 hours to prepare. When ordering their beef noodle soup, you have the option to order two types of meat, 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.
