If you've got Vietnamese on the mind, a recent opening is need-to-know. The newcomer to Columbia Heights, called Pho Viet, is located at 2628 11th St. NW on the ground floor of a brownstone.
According to the Washington Post, diners will find a carefully crafted phở broth packed with aromatics like ginger, onion, a Vietnamese spice blend, oxtail and generous helpings of brisket and flank steak.
Each bowl is served with a plate of bean sprouts, jalapeños, lime and basil, and comes with rice noodles and protein options like eye-of-round beef, meatballs, chicken and shrimp. Vegetarians, check out the veggie spring rolls and veggie phở.
With a five-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp so far, Pho Viet is off to a promising start.
S C., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Aug. 16, wrote, "Great! The phở is fresh and flavorful and the service is fast and friendly. So far I've only had the veggie phở, and it was quite good."
Yelper Diane T. added, “Excellent phở! Extremely fresh options and the staff is super friendly. Owner is a very sweet, longtime resident of the neighborhood; glad she opened this tasty spot!”
