The pho here is some of the best around, with a color like diluted caramel and a big flowery whiff of cinnamon, cloves, and star anise. All the soups — known collectively as mon nuoc, “watery dishes” — are fantastic at this comfortably rangy Chinatown spot. With its custardy blocks of congealed pork blood, bun rieu (tomato-noodle soup with ground shrimp) isn’t for everybody, but pho ga, chicken pho, is a watery dish even the faint of heart can dip into.
