Pho Y #1 (San Jose)

We went to Pho Y #1 Restaurant on Capitol Expressway near Silver Creek Rd in South San Jose for dinner one night. It’s supposedly the best place for pho in San Jose. But in a city with the highest concentration of Vietnamese outside of Vietnam, that’s a bold statement to make and a hard reputation to maintain.

I wasn’t feeling like all those assorted beef cuts you usually get in pho, so I just ordered mine with beef meatballs.

It’s not bad, but I don’t think it’s the best pho. The broth here is nothing special – it doesn’t make me go “ahhhhh” when I take that first sip. The broth over at Beef Noodle #1 across the way is better, IMO.

Where is your favorite place for pho?

Aloha, Nate
