Fodor's Expert Review I Love Pho 264

$ Richmond Vietnamese Fodor's Choice

Tucking into a steaming bowl of phŏ (traditional noodle soup) at this Victoria Street restaurant is like channeling the backstreets of Hanoi and Saigon. While they also serve crunchy, deep-fried spring rolls and flavor-packed ricepaper rolls, the mainstay of the menu (a blackboard on the wall) is various combinations of bò (beef) and gà (chicken) with noodles in aromatic stock. Each order comes with a piled plate of Vietnamese mint, bean shoots, and lemon wedges, and there are bottles of chili paste and fish sauce on every mock-marble plastic table. This restaurant is crowded with Vietnamese and other phŏ lovers on weekends, so you often have to line up on the footpath, but turnover is fast so its never long before you are seated and eating some of Melbourne's best—and cheapest—food. I Love Pho also has an outlet at the Melbourne Emporium food hall in the city center.
