Restaurant Review - Pho Ca Dao

Pho Fix

The cold weather requires soup. Atlanta's ethnic restaurants, especially along Buford Highway, are excellent choices for huge bowls of soup. Whether you head into a Mexican spot (like Los Compadres) for menudo, posole or caldo de gallo, or a Korean spot (like Cho Son Ok) for kim chi soup, you'll get a filling meal for next to nothing. My favorite ethnic soup, though, is the Vietnamese pho. Usually made with beef stock, to which rice noodles, herbs, chilies, lime and a variety of meats are added, pho is a dish that allows the diner to control the flavor. Buford Highway is lined with pho restaurants, including Pho Ca Dao, which probably serves the best pho in the city.
