a small plaza at the southeast corner of Rural and University in Tempe, which houses at least five varieties of international cuisine, Pho Nhat Vietnamese and Chinese Restaurant is a good bet for a $10 lunch. Everything on their menu is priced under $7. Spare in atmosphere yet big on flavor, Pho Nhat is a family-run business that specialized in Pho, Vietnamese rice noodle soup with either beef or chicken-based broth. 

Each enormous bowl is loaded with noodles and your choice of meat. The restaurant offers exotic meat combinations such as tripe and tendon, or more basic selections such as the rare beef (which continues cooking in the broth) and chicken.

My wife and I love this place, the pho s great, and we love the bbq pork spring rolls. There has been a few nights were we are the only 30 somethings with a kid surrounded by Asian ASU students. The Lady is very nice and she always remembers us, even when we had our baby and we didn't go for like almost 2 years, she remembered us. She gave us a rice noodle and broth baby size for our 1 year old. We drive from across the Mesa border for this, even though unphogettable or blue moon is closer.

I usually get the well cook beef and tendons, and put lime and chilly paste. Always hits the spot on a cold AZ winter night.

Go there, support your local eateries. For what you spend at jack in the box or mcdonalds  you can get a much healthier, fresher lunch or dinner.

By the way, I kind of miss the hand painted Mickey Mouse, Pluto and other disney characters on the wall. Reminded me of the paleterias growing up back in Mexico.


Their egg-noodle pho is delicious. I'd recommend their sea-food!

Sparse on ambiance? What do you call the huge awkward mural of everyone's favorite Steamboat Willy? ;)
