It may be the only restaurant on Earth where the noodles arrive at your table before you even order. Somehow PHO PASTEUR just knows what you want ahead of time, and have food runners waiting by the kitchen doors ready to bolt into the dining room. With cheap and delicious bowls the size of Darth Vader's helmet — and everyone from Asian locals to Centerfolds strippers stopping by to slurp — Pho Pasteur is a go-to spot that broke, rich, and all sorts of in-between cats visit religiously. Sure, the waitresses rush out customers after about 15 minutes, but the broth makes it all worthwhile, as do the avocado shakes, which may be the best in the city.
