Noodles in broth: even better when they come from a place with a funny name
If you're opening a pho joint in a city inundated with pho joints, it can be difficult to distinguish yourself from the pack. While this list has absolutely no bearing on the quality of the actual food at these establishments, these five pho restaurants deserve acknowledgment for their creative nomenclature. Sadly, neither Seattle nor this list can lay claim to Walla Walla institution Pho Sho.
5. Pho Yummy, 1006 Lake St S, Kirkland, (425) 739-9944
This one's more cute than funny, but hey: cute sells, too.
4. Pho in the USA, 539 NE Northgate Way, 361-7938
Yeah, okay, exchanging "pho" for "born" is kind of a stretch, but referencing the Boss is never, ever a bad idea.
This one may have been accidental, considering its self-deprecating implications, but clever, nonetheless.
2. What the Pho, 1317 228th Street SE, Bothell, (425) 485-7700 (other locations in Bellevue and Tukwila)
1. Un Pho Gettable
, 322 N 105th St, 349-0885
You've got to hand it to this humble North Seattle hole in the wall: amongst the dozens upon dozens of pho restaurants located on Aurora, Un Pho Gettable is the only place that had a name memorable enough to stick.
