Beef remains by far the most popular version of the soup in Little Saigon, and the majority of restaurants offer the chicken variety as an afterthought. But at Pho Dakao, cluckers are king (or queen, as it were)-they offer eight types of chicken pho, from some containing giblets, tripe and other offal to straightforward chicken soup that Red Staters would slurp up if they didn't know it came from the hands of a Vietnamese.
