10 Vietnamese Restaurants That Are Pho Real Around Bangkok

“What do you want to eat?”, a question which probably gets the least straightforward answers of all time. But when forced to choose, the things that pop into your mind usually are Japanese, Korean, Italian, or steak. No, we are not mind-readers, but that is exactly how our brain works too - so we feel your pain. If only there were more and better options…but there is!

Other than your typical choices, why not try and give Vietnamese food a chance to fill you up? Often admired for its exceptionally fresh ingredients, minimal use of fatty products like dairy and oil, and heavy usage of herbs and vegetables, Vietnamese cuisine has long been showered with praise. If done right, the balance of fresh herbs, meats, and spices can genuinely create a great taste bud party in your mouth. It is unsurprising then, why Vietnamese food is so often considered to be one of the healthiest, yet tastiest, cuisines in the world.

For those looking to make Vietnamese food an option the next time you are looking for a bite that will comfort your mind a soul - especially after a hangover, you may ask where one would need to head to with so many choices littered around town. Here are the 10 Vietnamese restaurants that are pho real (excuse the pun) in Bangkok!
