I mentioned Pho Nam in an earlier review of Pho Saigon in Sac. Out of all the pho restaurants I have been to, I rank Pho Nam as my top choice. With that being said, I know that I have not been to every favorite pho restaurant in Sacramento or San Jose, but Pho Nam is definitely the best so far. The only reason Pho Nam didn’t get a 5/5 was because of this one annoying fly who wouldn’t go away.
Today, I ordered the usual Pho Tai with added beef balls, no onions. I do like how Pho Nam offers cilantro for the pho as well, even though I declined. I also ordered a strawberry smoothie. The pho noodles were fresh and did not stick together. The broth was fairly clear, not cloudy at all like Saigon, and was filled with rich beef flavor that reminds me of Pho Tau Bay, but better. The meat portions were generous and tasty. The strawberry smoothie tasted really good and fresh.
Overall, Pho Nam is an absolute pho stop whenever I am in the San Jose area. Until someone tells me otherwise, I will still consider Pho Nam as the pho of choice. If you are visiting the Milpitas area, I strongly urge you to try them out after your visit to the Great Mall!
