Phở Thanh Bình

District 3

*****
After a long search and some steep (and delicious)  competition, Hai and I have agreed that Phở Thanh Bình is among our favorite spots for Phở Bò in Saigon.  (Hai’s been loving the phở here since he was in high school!)

Serving up among the best Phở Bò in Saigon

Not quite “on the street”, but funky and close enough to qualify on our best of Street Food list.  Only 30,000 VND for a generous large bowl, or 35,000 VND for their phở đặc biệt (extra special!),  you can savor the beef noodle soup with lots of very tender and delicious beef –  i (rare, cooked in the broth as it’s served) or nầm (well-cooked brisket), or both.

Cooking phở here for decades!

If you’re wondering Where to Eat in Saigon, please trust us when we rate Saigon’s Phỡ Thanh Bình as among the best you’ll ever try.

UPDATE – February, 2016: Confirmed last night as still an amazingly delicious bowl of Phở Bò (beef noodle soup).  And now, Hai says his #1 favorite!! The prices are up a bit after all these years, but absolutely worth every đong (40.000 vnd – regular; 50.000 vnd – special).

  1. Love reading your recommendations – & so looking forward to my second trip to Vietnam (first one was March last year & I fell. in. love.).

    Looking forward to trying your #1 pho in Saigon, and wondering if they do pho ga? I’m a bigger fan of the chicken, I find it lighter. But I know so many places love to specialise in one thing only … still, was hoping this lady’s skill might extend to the chook variety.

    Warm Regards from Australia!
