Pho Ha Long
6424 NW Loop 410 # 104, (210) 521-4507
It seems that Pho Ha Long's found a secret formula for keeping Alamo City slurpers happy. We're particularly partial to the No. 10 with round eye steak, lean flank and chewy tendon, but if you’re looking for a spicy variation, dining companions recommend the No. 45 bún bò huê with spicy beef soup.
