Hungry? A new neighborhood Vietnamese spot has you covered. Called Pho Street, the fresh arrival is located at 2104 Market St. in Rittenhouse.
This newcomer--which has other outposts in Springfield and Bryn Mawr--specializes in traditional Vietnamese fare like vermicelli, banh mi sandwiches, pho, and rice plates.
On the menu, expect to see starters like shrimp summer rolls, duck salad with pickled veggies and Vietnamese coriander, and crispy tofu with a house dipping sauce.
For noodle soups, look for the deluxe pho with eye-round steak, flank steak, brisket, soft tendon, tripe, and beef meatballs; pho with white meat chicken; and tofu or shrimp pho.
Switching over to vermicelli, you'll find dishes such as grilled shrimp or pork, beef, sugarcane shrimp, or pork patty served with sauteed scallion, green leaf lettuce, cilantro, mint, crushed peanuts, crispy shallots, and pickled carrots. (You can check out the full menu here.)
The fresh arrival has garnered an enthusiastic response thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of 11 reviews on Yelp.
