People who know good Vietnamese food know all about Pho Horn’s. Off the beaten path on the Providence/Pawtucket line, Pho Horn’s has been raising the bar of excellence for nearly ten years. With a mostly Vietnamese staff in the kitchen and in the dining room, the restaurant is known throughout the state and beyond for its authentic Southeast Asian cuisine.
Considered one of the healthiest cuisines in the world, Vietnamese food is praised for its delicate combination of fresh herbs, vegetables and tender cuts of meat. The selection at Pho Horn’s is diverse and affordable, with lunch specials starting at $6.95. Pho Bo (Beef Noodle Soup), referred to as pho by loyalists, is the house specialty. The aromatic beef broth, seasoned with scallions, onion and cilantro, has the perfect balance of flavors and spices. Eleven different types of pho are available on the extensive menu, and customers can choose from a rice noodle (pho) or yellow noodle (mi). Other specialties include fried noodles entrees, spring and summer rolls, steamed vermicelli (bang hoi) and a delicious variety of chicken, pork, beef, seafood and vegetarian dishes. Most items on the menu are cooked to order, and the level of spiciness can be adjusted upon request.
Bubble tea, Thai iced tea and a great selection of Asian beer and wine are available, as well as domestic beverages. Take-out orders for small and large parties (like an office lunch order) can be accommodated with a short notice. A visit to Pho Horn’s is a true taste of the delectable cuisine and culture of Vietnam.
