Vietnamese cuisine is all the rage nowadays, and thanks to Pho Bamboo, McAllen residents can now get acquainted with this latest culinary trend. The restaurant's menu features some of Vietnam's best-known dishes, including banh mi sandwiches loaded with lemongrass pork and pickled vegetables, as well as delicate spring rolls filled with shrimp and vermicelli noodles. Then there's the main draw: pho. This soup is built on a foundation of spicy beef broth and rice noodles, which guests can customize by adding accompaniments like fresh basil, bean sprouts, or a squeeze of lime juice.
