Located in a sea of noodle shops along South Federal, Pho Duy serves up pho that's among the best in town. And pho fans know it, too. This tiny spot sees a constant frenzy of activity, with eaters rotating through the tables jam-packed into the space, giving fast-moving servers barely enough time to clear away empty bowls and unused herbal accoutrements before the next party sits down to dine. The second outpost, in Broomfield, offers an expanded menu with equally excellent bun and a slightly less frenzied atmosphere. This is one of the few pho spots that offers a version of the traditional Vietnamese dish with a veggie broth.
