Pho is a hallmark of Vietnamese cuisine. With a rich, bone broth as a base, it’s loaded with soft noodles, scallions, and lean beef. In the Itasca area, it’s hard to beat the pho from Pho Ha, a small Vietnamese restaurant in nearby Glendale Heights.
Pho Ha has a simple, unassuming exterior, but the food is notably authentic and delicious. You can enjoy it in the simple dining room or take it to-go. The large mural on the wall set an artistic, whimsical ambiance.
If it’s your first time ordering Vietnamese food, then you must try the pho. There are a few different types on the menu, including a chicken version, but the style with sliced beef and beef meatballs is the most traditional. If you’re ready to branch out from pho, consider ordering the bahn mi. A sandwich loaded with pickled veggies, onions, cabbage, meats, and a mayonnaise-based spread, it’s utterly filling. Beef stew, served with a baguette, is another hearty choice.
To accompany your meal, be sure to order a boba or bubble tea. It’s creamy, refreshing, and the tapioca pearls at the bottom give it a unique texture. Guests also love the Vietnamese coffee, which is sweet and creamy.
Pho Ha is located a few minutes from Two Itasca Place Apartments at 1971 Bloomingdale Rd. in Glendale Heights, IL. They’re open Tuesday – Sunday from 9 am – 8:30 pm, so feel free to stop in for lunch or dinner.
