Pho Horn’s


Pho Horn’s – Pawtucket, RI

I may have not held vigil when my restaurant friend Phở Paradise closed in Providence, but I still shed a salty, soupy tear while sitting there in an empty parking lot, reminiscing of the bygone days of broth and banh pho.

My pity party was short-lived because Rhode Island maintains a rich and vibrant Asian American population that tops 34,000 strong, and represents 3.2% of the total population. That means that the likelihood of other Vietnamese restaurants proudly serving bowls of bliss are high.

Woonsocket to the East Bay, and as far south as Westerly, their Phở is worth the drive.

Phở originated in the early 20th century and was originally sold at dawn and dusk by roaming street vendors in Northern Vietnam. They shouldered mobile kitchens using  poles to hang wooden cabinets with soup, noodles, spices, and the necessary cookware to serve a composed bowl of phở.

Phở Horn’s is modestly appointed and focuses on the quality of the food and the cleanliness of the atmosphere. Quite frankly, these two reviewer considerations are paramount. In the spirit of sanitation, always follow this simple rule: if the bathroom is dirty, the kitchen is too!

Phở Horn’s maintains an extensive menu featuring a variety of soups, appetizers, noodle dishes, as well as beef, pork, chicken, seafood and vegetarian entrees.

I might have been late to the proverbial party, but I know when I’ve hit liquid gold.  Phở Horn’s is wicked thơm ngon!
