Pho 86

A Vietnamese restaurant in Bensonhurst with great pho and acid green walls, Pho 86 is good spot for a low-key weeknight dinner, where you'll likely spend less than $50 for two people. There’s a steady stream of delivery orders, but pho—like mountain spring water or a freshly picked berry—is best enjoyed at the source. You don’t need all of the ingredients that come in the sink-sized Extra Big Bowl, but get them anyway. The combination of bouncy noodles and the textures of five different cuts of beef (thinly-sliced eye of round, shank, tendon, trip, and navel brisket) make this soup extremely moreish.
