Pho Van

One of my favorite types of food has to be Vietnamese food, more specifically Pho. Living in Pittsburgh there really is not a large selection of places to get Pho. I’ve already told you about Pho Minh, Vietnam’s Pho and Lulu’s Noodles. Well there is a new Pho place is town called Pho Van!

I actually found out about Pho Van through Groupon, where they were offering a $20 gift certificate for $10. Obviously I had to get it and check this new Pho place out! Pho Van is located 2120 Penn Ave. in the Strip District. The first time I went there I went with fellow ThinkComputers staff member Colin. We have been to many different Pho places together. I decided to order the #24, which is combination beef. They let you pick 3 different types of beef, I decided on rare eye of round, well done brisket and tripe.

I’ve had a lot of Pho from many different places and I was quite impressed with Pho Van! The broth tasted excellent and the meat was perfect. I like that I was able to pick 3 different types of meat as well. The #24 Pho combination was only $9 and you can’t beat that! I’ve been back to Pho Van twice since my first visit and if you like tea I would really suggest getting their Dragon Eye Oolong tea. It has to be some of the best tea I’ve ever had! If you are in the Strip and are looking for some great food definitely check out Pho Van!
