The powerful aroma of star anise, beef broth and basil will greet you at the door like an old friend at this spiffed-up pho house. Pho Le trots out a multitude of housemade and bottled condiments -- including crunchy pickled garlic cloves and blazingly hot whole chiles -- to accentuate its delicate but complex pho and other rice-noodle dishes. Veer from the traditional with shrimp pho or take a plunge into the deep end with an exotic bowl of hu tieu: rich pork noodle soup bobbing with hard-boiled quail eggs and tender slices of pork heart. You'll be in hog heaven!
