Pho Xe Tang

4953 N. Broadway St.
Chicago, IL 60640

Critic’s Notes

Although some deep-menu adventures, such as clay-pot catfish, reward the curious, the name of the restaurant (“Tank Noodle” in English) points to the pho, starring a beefy, oily, exotically spiced broth and a skein of noodles in a tank-size bowl. Warming and satisfying, the soup fills you up for less than a downtown cocktail. Crowded dining room; busy but smiley waitstaff.
