  Pho Pasteur on Washington St in Chinatown
by dinhyen

Boston can't compare with NY when it comes to dining. But it'll impress you with the diversity of dining options. When it comes to food, I like practically anything. But being Vietnamese, I still think of Vietnamese first and foremost. The restaurant we frequent the most is the Pho Pasteur in Brighton; it sits at the corner of Brighton Ave and Harvard St. This area itself is very lively with restaurants, bars, live-music cafes and abounds with college-types from BU just down the street. However, if you don't have a set of wheels, you may opt for the another Pho Pasteur in the chain in Chinatown or the one on Kennedy St in Harvard Square.

One may wonder why a restaurant is named after a 19th-century French scientist. Well, the original Pho Pasteur has always been on Pasteur Street in Saigon's District 1. It's still there now.

Favorite Dish: The chain specializes in the Vietnamese soup, Pho, which can be customized with different types of toppings. Vietnamese people loves soup, of which there are several varieties besides Pho. If you're not into soup, the vermicelli with grilled meat and spring rolls may be another option.
