From Wheaton to Falls Church, I’ve tried countless bowls of pho looking for one with the depth and pure heady aroma of Pho 75’s. I have yet to find one, which is why when I need a fix of this Vietnamese noodle soup, I continue to roll right into Hyattsville. I can’t vouch for the other Pho 75 locations, but this spot always treats me right. I don’t come for the joint’s Spartan, prison-mess atmosphere. I come for the soup, which benefits from the cooks’ doing nothing but doting over its long-simmering flavors.
