Pho Bo Vang

23764 Mercury Road Lake Forest, CA 92630 | Lake Forest | 949-707-5768

Location Description:

Pho Bo Vang is a Vietnamese restaurant in Mission Viejo. It's the Methuselah among South County’s budding Vietnamese restaurant scene and arguably the benchmark as pho slowly spreads into OC’s other southern cities. Though it’s reportedly changed hands a few times, it’s still family-operated. The restaurant looks as if it were surgically transplanted from Bolsa. It has mirrors as walls to make the small room look bigger than it is. Its customers, no matter from what demographic group they come, all know to order the pho with the jellied bits of tendon, to wrap the cha gio in the lettuce leaf before dunking in fish sauce, and to squirt the hoisin and Sriracha with abandon.
