I was originally going to file this article in our "Revisited" section, as I've been to this joint numerous times and it's been around a little while. I first went there religiously over three years ago, but lately I haven't been back until just a few weeks ago. My quest for quality, authentic Vietnamese Pho, unwavering as I am in it, took me back...

Actually, I've run out of places to try-out and realized I've never reviewed this place even though I had eaten there before. Anyways, as is the case with several places around town, this restaurant boldly declares its supremacy in its very name: Pho No. 1.

Located way out there in Gubei, Pho No. 1 has doubled in size since I last visited, and has become somewhat of a neighbourhood institution for Vietnamese food. The menu is extensive and large, and many of the dishes are definitively Vietnamese. Glancing over the menu, I was quite eager to try the dishes I hadn't had in a while since moving to Shanghai. As was the case that day though, my little stomach could only fit in so much, and I came specifically for the Pho. I decided then that I would have to come back to try out the other dishes.
