” I walked two hours for Pho. It’s so hard to find good Vietnamese food in Europe. The tiniest of lines winding around the block and they only had two dishes on the menu – Pho and Bun Bo. So worth the walk.”
It is what she shared with me about this place. It’s worth a try, isn’t it?
4. Utrecht, Netherlands
I was wandering around Utrecht on the evening of one November day and found this restaurant by chance.
I came here first because of the bubble milk tea but finally decided to try other Vietnamese food as well.
The restaurant is quite small, more suitable for takeaway. I don’t remember the price though, but it was affordable compared to an expensive country like the Netherlands.
Pho was very tasty and enough to make you feel full.

To her, Mien Tay in London is the best one. She has been to all the other popular ones in London, but Mien Tay is most authentic.
6. Ha Noi, Vietnam – By Romix (向旭)
“What do you think about this one?”, I asked.
“Marvelous！I had this for breakfast after a long journey, after that I felt refreshed! The chicken soup is clear, transparent but definitely tasty, and the chicken is well cooked also kept its original taste. And I can saw the whole process of making it, looks so simple but I guess it’s difficult. First of all, it’s made of love “, she answered.
7. Prague, Czech Republic – By Sarah Reichenbach
Sapa, not in Northern rice fields but one of the outskirts of Prague: one of the biggest authentic Vietnamese markets outside of Vietnam.
The broth of the Pho is clear, the meat tender, the noodles fresh and the soup is served with tons of herbs! I will go out on a limb here and say it was as good as the ones we had in Vietnam!
8. Bratislava, Slovakia – By Martina Bušovská
It is from Bratislava, Slovakia. At Vietnamese bistro/restaurant near my university. They have a few variations, but this one is my fave. I am eating it often when I want something comforting and not heavy on my stomach. I have never eaten Pho anywhere else though, so I can’t compare but this is very good.
9. Montreal, Canada – By Chieh-Yi Chou
I had this on the trip to Canada. The restaurant is in China Town in Montreal. Interestingly there are many pho restaurants in “China” Town. In North America, I have been seeing people having Pho with Sriracha, which I seldom do.
10. Jakarta, Indonesia – By Krishna Sadhana
We have an entire franchise of Pho restaurants in my country. There’s even one near my apartment in Jakarta. Unfortunately, I didn’t eat there since my parents would go “You’ve come back to Jakarta just to eat Pho?”, but I will do it next time!
