Pho Ga Nha
Pho Ga Nha is a shrine to all things chicken. Though a relative newcomer to San Jose’s Vietnamese restaurant scene, their phở, made with free-range, local chicken in a delicate broth, is already on its way to legendary status. Hainan chicken rice and other dishes based on family recipes, like côm gà rô ti with red rice and egg, duck congee, and filet mignon- and tripe-filled phở tài sàch round out the menu. With nearly every dish costing under $15, Pho Ga Nha is, not surprisingly, always busy. Come in the mid-afternoon or after 8pm for the smallest crowds.
