This location is the shabbiest of the three restaurants that make up the Pho Bang mini-chain. In truth, calling the decor no-frills would be a compliment. The fake-wood-paneled dining room comprises half a dozen shaky tables adorned with squeeze bottles of sauces and buckets filled with chopsticks. The tiny menu, far more limited than those of its siblings, is dominated by peculiar drinks—salty plum soda, anyone? —and myriad types of the classic Vietnamese soup called pho. These differ from one another only by the permutations of beef parts they contain. Showered with crunchy bean sprouts and sprigs of basil and cilantro, the steaming bowls are easily slurpable but by no means the best in Chinatown. Neither are the chubby, greasy spring rolls nor the rubbery lemongrass chicken over rice vermicelli. Still, they're decent and dirt-cheap. Your best bet, though, is the pork chops, which come pounded flat, glazed in a sweet, caramel-like sauce, and set on top of a pile of rice.
