Guess where I'm eating delicious pho?

  • No, this isn't a Vietnamese restaurant ...

In the United States, an ethnic dish has officially gained popular acceptance when it's no longer found only in the restaurants that traditionally serve a distinctive culture's cuisine. For example: egg rolls and fried rice, once exclusive to Chinese restaurants, can sometimes be found at American-style buffets, like the Golden Corral. Ditto spaghetti and meatballs (a staple of American restaurants, particularly steakhouses, for decades) or tacos.

The latest dish finding mass appeal is the Vietnamese pho, a hot noodle soup, usually made with chicken or beef.

The restaurant featured here serves other things besides pho (including lobster crab rangoon), but the pho display is very impressive. There's a cook behind the counter who prepares the noodle bowls to order, but patrons can spice up their pho with fresh basil leaves, cilantro, chili paste, hoisin and several other herbs, spices and condiments stacked up around a gilded statue of a young Asian man gazing intently into a soup bowl.

Where is this restaurant, dear commenters?
