Chicken and rice noodles in a rich broth with cilantro, chopped green onions, and accompanied with sliced jalapeno peppers and lemon wedges. $6.20 small
Turtle Tower Restaurant, San Francisco
This chicken pho was really different from others I’ve tried. The most obvious difference was the wide, thick noodles they use. It also wasn’t served with a side of sprouts and sprigs of thai basil. That said, I think it was absolutely delicious! The broth was frickin’ amazing – so rich and complex. I actually enjoyed that they kept the skin on the chicken pieces. It seemed more authentic and definitely added more flavor.
