Not in the mood to cook and didn't want to dine out. Struck by an unknown inspiration we drove to Seattle's International District on the advice of a friend to get take out from Pho Bac. (The "c" on the sign has disappeared and on some websites it is called "Pho Ba".) Two delightful ladies were operating the restaurant -- one came from the kitchen to take our order "to go". We had tofu spring rolls (orders of two) and spring rolls which included shrimp (orders of two rolls). The rare sliced beef pho is wonderful. The beef is paper thin and raw. At home, when one puts the noodles in the bowl, the beef with herbs on top, and then pours over the hot broth the meat cooks before one's very eyes. (Just as intended). The broth was delicious and did not rely on "over saltiness" to have flavour. The accompanying basil, bean sprouts, jalepenos, sauces, and lime were all very fresh and made for a wonderful meal. We also had orders of vermicelli noodles with stir-fried shrimp and vermicelli noodles with stir-fried chicken. All fresh, good portions, and great julienned carrots, basil, cucumbers as an accompaniment for this dish. Fish sauce was very good.
Take out comes in compostable cardboard containers and is packed with necessary chop sticks, napkins, and American cutlery. Nice to be able to sit at home and have a great meal. Well worth the money.
