What a great find! Love the title.
Back to work...


I'm surprise with the cost of it all.

Thanks, Cathy, we felt we got lucky. As for the cost billy, I honestly think the take out menu is out of date. I just didn't pay much attention to the prices in the restaurant and paid in cash so I have no receipt.


This place looks great! I might be visiting near Phoenix this summer...but it might be too hot that I wouldn't be in the mood for hot noodle soup...

My mom always says, you know it's a good bow of bun if you don't need shrimp paste.

I can't speak to the quality, Cliff, but Pho 43 also has things like bun bi, shredded pork on cool noodles etc. Oddly, some people like soup in hot weather -- places like Vietnam and Thailand serve a lot of soups and even here in Yuma, Mexican restaurants will have soup specials in July.

I didn't need shrimp paste, FD, but I've eaten bun bo hue with Kirk before,


The soup looks great. But is the bowl small for standard Pho bowl in the US? The price is very decent!


I have been going to pho 43 for the past 7 years and let me tell you, the scent of the broth walking in the door STILL makes my mouth salivate involuntarily. Sometimes i go there early in the mornings, and there is "momma" starting her day off paying homage and giving thanks to her Gods/Goddesses.

The service has always been quick for us, and the prices are absolutely unbeatable. If you are looking for a pretentious, snooty, trees up their ass atmosphere, go to tempe, scottsdale, gilbert or chandler where the pho there is piss poor and overly peppered.

A large bowl is not more then 6 dollars and as the sizes go down, as do the prices. A medium bowl is the most i can handle, even after saving my appetite for pho all day.
They don't fool you, they feed you and if you walk out hungry still, it's your own damn fault.

Sometimes you have to go slummin' to find the best eats.

Thanks for the comment, Maria. Nice to hear from a regular. I thought our meal there was truly excellent. I can't tell you how much I wish they would open a branch here in Yuma.


I love this place. Great prices, atmosphere, and the food is delicious!!!!

I was just there yesterday!!!

I agree, alma. Tina and I made it back in November and it was just as outstanding as the first time.
