If you only have fifteen minutes for lunch, you can rely on Pho Saigon. The Midtown location is the type of place you go to eat pho alone in silence. Meditative trance music playing softly over the speakers in this dimly lit strip mall spot. The food comes out unbelievably fast. No one will talk to you (too much). The food may not blow you away like some of the other restaurants on this list, but it’s utilitarian, and you can find pho satisfaction in peace. Plus, Pho Saigon has multiple locations around town.
