Pho Cafe isn’t your typical Vietnamese restaurant you’d find in Little Saigon, Orange County. It has a Silverlake vibe to it, you might even see a couple of famous chefs on their days off slurping some noods among hipsters. When Blossom is already too busy, we suggest going to Pho Cafe for one dish that they truly master: the veggie pho. While other East-Side Vietnamese restaurants would hand you a bland broth with broccoli and a few cubes of fried tofu, Pho Cafe comes up with a rich umami broth full of different mushrooms: shiitake, buna-shimeji, maitake, kinoko, enoki…
