Mama Pho Vietnamese Restaurant

CLOSED Situated inside a former McDonald's, Mama Pho provides much happier meals. Pho is in the name. How is it in the bowl? The broth is beefier than most, pho's signature anise note more a subtle accent here. Other standout soups include beef wonton, which has a hefty dose of garlic flavor; and fiery, earthy bun bo Hue. The menu as a whole has the broad reach of most area Vietnamese restaurants, with plenty of noodle bowls and rice platters. Grilled pork is a sure bet, beautifully browned and oh so sweet. The spring rolls, simple and plump, are very good.
