Destination Pho! Inspired by his grandmother, Lucy, Head Chef Johnny Huynh, brings love and passion for Vietnamese food to Bushwick. You’ll have an option of their famous pho made with their vegetarian broth and a choice of tofu, brisket, or chicken. They serve up a perfectly aligned portion of rice noodles waiting to be stirred up from the bottom of the bowl. Prices are less than $15, so run, don’t walk to this cozy family-friendly restaurant.

Chuko means ‘vintage’ in Japanese—describing their appreciation of careful selection and innovation with both traditional and novel ingredients. There are three broths: vegetarian, smoky tokotsu (pork bone), and a mixture of pork, beef and chicken stocks. You can also choose to add chicken or pork on top, which will keep you around $15 to $20 a bowl. Don’t hesitate, it’s worth it!

It’s also BYOB to give you those extra warm fuzzies.
