Pho 14

You can quibble over whether it’s the best Vietnamese spot in Paris, but it’s undeniably one of the most popular, with perennially long lines snaking out the door. Turnover is fast and you’ll be your eating steaming bowl of #1 (our favorite ph?) soon enough: thinly sliced strips of raw beef, meatballs, and (optional) stomach. The selection of starters is limited, but the pork nems (spring rolls) are always a good bet, as are the chewy banh cuon (steamed pork & mushroom dumplings with slices of ham on top). A great option when you’re looking for something cheap and cheerful surly.
