Pho Ga District review image

Pho Ga District

When we’re looking for Vietnamese in the SGV, Pho Ga District is our go-to every time. This Rosemead spot is great from start to finish - even something as simple as the boiled chicken is moist, flavorful, and great with the accompanying hot chili soy sauce. Our move is to get the pho ga with bone-in chicken - the broth is salty and a bit acidic, the noodles are firm, and it’s all especially good with some fish and chili sauces added. We also love the papaya salad doused in vinegar and crushed peanuts, and the banh cuon, rolls stuffed with chopped mushrooms, shrimp, and pork.
