Date Night at Pho Grand

Pho Grand
277 Grand Street New York, NY 10002
212.965.5366

Will and I have been to many Vietnamese restaurants that we know exactly where's a good and a bad spot, but a friend recently recommended me to try a Vietnamese restaurant just a block from the Grand Street train station. My friend also told me the Pho here is bomb, so I told Will and we gave this restaurant a shot.

Will and I came on a Friday night and it was busy, but not crazy. I was amazed by how big Pho Grand was because most Vietnamese restaurants we've been to are small or mid-sized. There's additional seating in the back too.
Pho Xe Lua
Will ordered his usual - Pho Xe Lua  and man, oh man... it smelled insanely delicious! I couldn't resist, had to take a sip of that broth and gosh, it was amazing and just delightful. I can't quite put it into words so you'll just have to try it for yourself.


The beef was slightly overcooked which I thought was a little awkward cause it's usually not cooked to this color. There's usually slight redness in it. Overall, Will was very happy with his Pho Xe Lua and said the broth was on point!

Vietnamese Spring Rolls
For appetizer, we ordered the Vietnamese spring rolls. These were crunchy, piping hot, and delightful. Fried to perfection and tasty!

Spring Rolls &  Grilled Beef over Rice Vermicelli
I absolutely love rice vermicelli at a Vietnamese restaurant because it's so simple yet so delicious! The spring rolls and grilled beef over rice vermicelli was accompanied with a bowl of sweet, tangy Fish sauce too. I enjoyed my rice vermicelli very much.

Overall, I really liked Pho Grand. Service was quick and on point. The food was great and prepared very well. I would definitely come back here again especially if I am close Grand Street and need a tasty Vietnamese meal.
