Irvine Gets Three New Pho Shops
At my count, Irvine has about eight pho/Vietnamese restaurants. Before long, this number will increase to 11, with new entrants La Pho in Quail Hill, Pho Saigon Pearl at Diamond Jamboree, and Pho So 1 in Westpark.
Pho So 1 is located at the former site of Goro, the long-lived sushi restaurant that folded this summer, and out of the three pho shops, it is the only one affiliated with a larger chain. Other Pho So 1s dot the San Fernando Valley.
