The Scoop: Pho Main Street opened its doors in May 2015, bringing authentic Vietnamese food to the Finderne area of town, which has more fast food establishments than sit-down restaurants.

The Menu: As the restaurant’s name suggests, the main event is pho, an aromatic and comforting Vietnamese soup consisting of broth, rice noodles, meat, herbs and bean sprouts. You have your pick of 23 variations, which come in rich beef-based broths and two different sizes: medium or extra-large. Try the house pho, P1 (left), with filet mignon, steak and oxtail; the pho tai nam, P3, with rare steak, well done flank and brisket; and the pho do bien, P19, with seafood. Equally authentic are the bánh mi sandwiches, stuffed with grilled pork, beef or chicken, or ham and pâté. Other highlights include spring and summer rolls; bánh xèo, a savory Vietnamese pancake; com tam, or broken rice, a traditional rice dish; egg noodle soups; bubble teas; and various fruit shakes.

Heads Up: There aren’t many options for vegetarians beyond summer rolls, rice vermicelli with tofu or steamed rice with tofu. Credit card minimum of $15. Portions are generous; come hungry.
