Phở Hùng

Location: Phở Hùng

Rating: Excellent
Meal:  Lunch for 3
Price:  $40
Payment: Credit cards accepted
Dishes: Beef pho, lemongrass chicken, teriyaki chicken, fresh spring rolls, taro root bubble tea
English Menu: Yes
Smoking: No this was unexpected.  We arrived in Portland were picked up by my brother, who currently lives on the east side of Portland.  As we discussed lunch options, he suggested Vietnamese, as they are apparently now popping up everywhere like mushrooms.  We were like, yes!  Bring it on!  Because finding good Vietnamese in Japan has been liking looking for a needle in a haystack.

So he took us to a spot nearish by and as we entered the place, BAM! it hit me in the face:  the strong, rich smell of beef broth and those special spices you only seem to find in an amazing pho broth.  We tried several different dishes, but sadly only one pho, thought it was more than plenty to feed two people.  My son and I had some of the chicken dishes, which weren't that great, but the pho truly blew us away.  Even the little dishes of broth that came with the chicken dishes were incredible.

Now I know that there may be better pho in Portland, but for us, this first taste of excellent pho in years places it at that category and deserving of that rating.
