25 Apr Le Pho
Downtown’s newest darling, Le Pho, is a pricey option for vegan eats. Tucked under the Juhl condos, Le Pho (owned by the same people who own Le Thai) offers three vegan dishes on their menu: a deep fried tofu spring roll, pho and vermicelli noodles (sub out the pork for tofu).
We tried two out of the three, and here’s the thing: the tofu spring roll was good. And, the pho was good. But, we’ve never forked out so much money for a bowl of vegan soup. Ever. Coming in at $12 for a bowl of vegan pho (it’s not on the menu, so you have to ask), it out ranks other pho offerings, including the chicken which is only $9. We’re not sure why there is an extra $3 tacked on to the vegan version, but it’s there.
Then, to get some more protein, we ordered up a side of tofu. That’s another $3.
Don’t get us wrong, it’s a lovely location and we’re thrilled to see another pho spot with vegan offerings, but it’s hard to dish out the dollars when those ordering meat soups are paying less.
