While everyone at Phở Bắc’s newest Downtown location is slurping phở under stark fluorescent lighting, there’s a speakeasy upstairs where you should head post-soup. Phởcific Standard Time serves phenomenal cocktails with Vietnamese twists at a small four-sided counter, and you should plan your weekends around making a visit. We love every last one of these drinks, from the Dua Dừa featuring rum, absinthe, coconut milk, lime, and basil seed to our current favorite cocktail in Seattle: the Cà Phê Tini, an iced coffee-inspired martini with Mr. Black cold brew liqueur, vodka, Vietnamese coffee, condensed milk, and pandan dust. While the cocktails are PST’s clear highlight, it would be a shame to come here and not also grab bar snacks like spicy tapioca dumplings, bánh mì, or cheesy caramelized crab and prawn dip complete with oiled toasts and sesame saltines for dunking.
