Legends of the Pho

No, this is not a review of a Vietnamese language version of the semi-chick flick starring Brad Pitt and Aiden Quinn, but rather a noodle house that's plugged into an annoyingly busy strip mall on the outskirts of Koreatown. Legend Noodle (& Grill) is somewhat of a gem in the relatively lackluster pho scene in Los Angeles proper (go outside the city limits and its a whole new ball game). On Viernes I had a mighty hankering and needed to keep it close, so I sped on over to Legend for a steamy bowl of pho tai chin (rare carne and brisket).
 Pho is served here with all the usual accoutrements: jalapenos, basil, sprouts, and limon along with Sriracha and Hoisin sauce. The noodles are sturdy, the carne is tender, and the broth is rich and flavorful. All said and done, Legend proves to be a serviceable solution for your pho cravings.
 On the way out, I noticed this colorful sign which boasts (in Ingles and Korean) of the best pho in town. While the validity of this claim is certainly subject for debate, I would say that if the 'town' they are referring to is indeed 'Koreatown' then I wholeheartedly agree. Happy slurping people.
