Pho 79 is a Vietnamese restaurant in Davie with another location in Pinecrest. As the name suggests, they specialize in pho, and their broth is one of the best we’ve sampled in South Florida—intensely beefy and rich, but not greasy. The servings here are enormous, so if you don’t want to go in on a cauldron of soup the size of the Hollywood water tower, order a side of broth for just a couple of bucks. It makes for a great appetizer. Besides pho, this restaurant also makes very good versions of com (rice bowls) and bun (rice noodle bowls) with your choice of toppings (we love the spring roll and grilled pork combination). Whatever you order, a meal here is incomplete without a milk and beaten egg soda, which is made with condensed milk, an egg yolk, and tastes like liquid French vanilla ice cream.
