One of my favorite restaurants in the Seattle area is Pho Vietnam
. It's small only about 10 tables but it's family run and the soup (pho) is awesome. I usually get the chicken Pho (pho ga) and the ice coffee. I like pho because it's broth-ie and the ingredients are fresh. It's great on a cold rainy Seattle day. The prices are good here and the owners are very nice. I didn't realize it but they have a second location in the U-District at 4235 U-Way NE.
A follow up on the Pho idea. Just opening in April is Pho Mai Noodles, 5129 Evergreen Way, Suite A, Everett, WA 98203. Formerly a grocery store at this location, then a sushi joint and finally a buffet most recently. I like the way Pho Mai Noodles opened things up. What was a darker closed off type restaurant now has floor to ceiling windows all the way around (it sits in the corner of the mall) so two sides are open which lets light in. Hardwood floors, modern tables and chairs. comfortable.
I ordered the Pho Tai (eye round steak) large. The large was way bigger then any larges that I've had anywhere and they even offer an extra large ! The broth has great taste. They offer the usual varieties and sizes. A small is ($4.95), medium ($5.75), large ($6.25) and extra large is ($6.95). Appetizers are egg rolls, spring rolls, shrimp rolls, pork skewers, shrimp wrapped around sugarcane and pork patties. Pho Mai have five rice dishes, five noodle dishes and ice coffee, tea and coconut water with fresh coconuts.
There is plenty of parking and they give the biggest creme puffs I've ever ate ! I walked in a little after 10am and they were open. I don't know, but I imagine they are open until 9:00pm. It could be great before an Aqua Sox game if you don't want the ballpark food. About 5 to 10 minutes away from the Aqua Sox Stadium.
