Now THAT'S how you visit and eat over a variety of visits ! You tried almost all the items I've had my eye on. I didn't see the rib pho on menu (been wanting to try any version since reading about it on your Duyen Mai post). I'm not sure what can substitute MSG (maybe a combo of salt & sugar?). Glad you were able to finally try this place out though.


Lol Faye..... I think you might enjoy the version of pho with beef ribs better at Duyen Mai. I actually don't mind long as you don't dump loads of it on the food. After all, judicious use of the product works well in cases like the Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings from Royal Mandarin.


Yikes. I've always found the pho at PT to be too sweet but never this bad. I'll steer clear for now.


I really didn't care for the pho broth Junichi.....I'll try and revisit in a few months to see what's up.




Bummer the wings had too much msg. I like the amount they use on the wings at Golden Chopsticks.


Too salty. Boooo. We just keep eating at the same local spots close to home... Pho Cow Cali for pho. Pho Ca Dao went downhill when they reopened and we haven't been back since. Wings from either Pho Ban Mai or Tim Ky Noodle. We hit up the OG P.T. recently though!


The best thing about the was hot. This brightened my day, thanks!


I didn't realize that Phuong Trang had this offshoot. I think I will pass on the msg-laden pho broth


It was sad Kat!

Way too much MSG Soo.

For S&P wings....unless I'm trying a new place; I'll head down to Royal Mandarin Lynn.

Glad the post made your day a bit brighter RD!

Hi CC - Yes, they took over the old Pho T Cali spot.
