Best Pho Restaurant Denver 2014 - Pho Le
When it comes to pho, the difference between the best and all the rest may seem like splitting noodles. But what makes Pho Le stand out is slightly sweet but intoxicatingly perfumed broth. What the broth lacks in restraint it makes up for in the pure and genuine flavors of savory beef and a spice blend that gives star anise top billing without becoming cloying. Add to that tender slices of rare steak that melt like Andes mints on the tongue, toothsome shreds of brisket, unctuous tendon that can convert even the most squeamish, and, on the side, two distinctive housemade chile sauces and piles of the freshest herbs, and this noodle soup will bowl you over. For those who want to go further than pho, there's a complementary menu of regional specialties.
