Pho #1 Woburn

Some serious snow this morning, so I'm not going anywhere except walking down to my local Vietnamese restaurant, Pho #1 in Woburn.

Dac Biet Beef noodle soup, medium size ($6.95). "Large sized bowl of our popular beef noodle soup, with combining sliced rare eye round, well-done flank, brisket, tendon and tripe" is what the menu says. At best, I would call this a passable rendering of Pho. The broth is OK but lacks the depth of flavor, only a few pieces of tripe and tendon and the brisket was mostly missing as was the well-done flank. What used to be chili oil in the container up top is now just dry chili flakes. Only redeeming quality is that it's cheap and within walking distance.
