Pho 2000

Most pho joints excel at pho and only pho. But at Pho 2000, a kitschy, gingham-clothed joint in Dorchester, everything that comes out of the kitchen is superlativ—and a bargain to boot. Try the Bo 7 Mon, seven courses of beef, priced at just $29.95 for two. Or, if you just can’t resist ordering the namesake, opt for the pho ga, a clove-infused chicken noodle soup that outclasses any in town.
