You’re pretty sure you’re coming down with something, you had a terrible day at work, and you need food that will make you feel better. You need Pho 2000′s oxtail pho. This place serves Korean-style pho, and the oxtail one has a great broth, lots of noodles, and lots of meat. The staff will almost certainly not talk to you after you’ve taken your order, but you’re replaying that weird thing you said in a meeting over and over again in your head, so you don’t need to talk to people anyway. Also good to know: they’re open until 2am (and 3am on weekends).
