Located in the heart of Chicago’s historic Gold Coast district in a charming little two-story vintage row house, Le Colonial’s beautifully designed interior and outdoor seating is only topped by the food. What truly puts them on the map is their Pho, which is near perfection.

Head to Le Colonial, a romantic, delicious spot for Pho and other French/Vietnamese delights.

Pho 777 features huge portions of this Vietnamese specialty, and in tons of different variations, too. From the Pho Chay, made with tofu and vegetables, to the Pho Dac Biet, filled various cuts of meat, you certainly won’t be starved for choice. They don’t serve alcohol here, but you’re more than welcome to bring your own!

Next time you’re craving a bowl of pho, Pho 777 is the place to go.

Tank Noodle is not the only Vietnamese restaurant in this area of Chicago, but it’s certainly one of the best places to go when you’re in the mood for pho. The menu is huge and can be overwhelming, so we’ll make it easy: order #39. The broth is full-bodied and flavorful, exactly as pho should be.

Whether you’re curing a nasty hangover or just want a healthy lunch, Tank Noodle is the place to be.

We Love Their: #39 Beef Noodle Soup Special, #53 Chicken Noodle Soup
