i5 Pho - Tacoma
This may be a pho restaurant, but you also have to try their crab rangoons! Since its opening in 2017, i5 Pho has become a special spot near and dear to Tacoma locals’ hearts. While the menu includes familiar items like pho and vermicelli, their variation on the banh mi takes a cue from french dip sandwiches and comes with a cup of warm broth for dipping the sandwich in. Yes, that does sound like a dream come true, and you have owner Nam Dang to thank for it.
Bonus: i5 Pho has another location in Seattle!
