Like a swimming pool, a bowl of Vietnamese pho refreshes the senses on a humid summer day and gives little kids a place to whack each other with noodles. Take your taste buds backpacking with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of Vietnamese fare at Pho Quynh.
Pho Quynh stuffs its lunch and dinner menu with more than 100 examples of authentic Vietnamese vittles, and accommodates them with a casual space large enough to accommodate groups. Mosey in after a particularly intense class on moseying for a starter of cha gio ($3.25), fried egg rolls wrapped lovingly around pork and shrimp inner children. Dates and accidentally conjoined mad scientists, meanwhile, can share the sup do bien ($5.25), a seafood soup for two awash with crab, shrimp, squid, and mussels. At the sound of the dinner hand-bell choir, try the pho dac biet ($7.50)—a specialty pho with a soup consistency decked out with brisket, meatballs, green and white onions, and bean sprouts on the side—or pair a Vietnamese iced coffee with the banh mi bo kho ($8.95), a beef stew served with french bread and chicken salad.
