I agree with you regarding the msg content in general for pho in San Diego being high. Although my preference for Pho is at Pho Lucky, the msg levels in their bowls are quite substantial too unfortunately.


Profit versus quality and repeatable customers. I don't think they have that mentality beside a buck...


Sadly true Kat.

Hi R - I don't know if it's just me, but it seems that the msg content in Lucky's pho, which is my favorite in SD as well has increased.

Hi Billy - Unfortunately, there are a bunch of places like that here.


I don't really know how the msg impacts the taste of the broth... what do you think of Pho Ca Dao or Pho Hoa Cali in the Mira Mesa area? Or, perhaps instead, which IS your favorite pho place so far in SD? I like the pho my family makes but have no idea what goes into the ingredients...


Hi Lynn - When the broth has that strange almost salty-sweet-savory flavor, I usually figure it's MSG, especially when my feet start swelling.
