Diablo Review

Just as the disparate ingredients in its mixed clay pots and combination noodle plates realize harmony, Pho Monsoon’s unremarkable location, menu, and atmosphere somehow merge into an evocative whole. Pastel paint and sprightly service evoke the springtime freshness of tender bamboo shoots. The zingy broth in the beef pho, deeply infused with star anise, is mesmerizing, while the chicken consommé, included with most entrées, has a clean, round, nurturing flavor. If you like your Vietnamese spicy, reach for one of the Asian chili sauces ... and then a prickly salt plum soda (beer, wine, and fresh lemonade also available). Pho Monsoon’s soulful character may be best appreciated, however, when lingering over a sweet iced coffee—brewed to order. Lunch and dinner daily.
