Pho Que Huong: Vegan Restaurant Review

Pho Que Huong is a Vietnamese restaurant in the Virginia Center Commons area of north Henrico County outside of Richmond. They took over the old Famous Dave’s location, and have slowly been adding decor to make it look less like a BBQ joint! But much of the old seating, etc. remains. It’s what one would call a hole in the wall kind of place; the kind of place where you walk in and instantly know it has fabulous food!

Indoor seating at the restaurant. You can see it still has some of the Famous Dave’s feel to the space.

We discovered this omnivore and vegan friendly restaurant a few years ago. I was craving noodle soup, but was finding it challenging to find close to my home and vegan. I lucked out here, though!

In addition to their vegan pho, they have a good variety of noodle and rice dishes on their vegetarian menu which, in the absence of dairy and eggs, is essentially vegan. I keep promising myself that I will venture out and try something new, but I keep going back for the soup!

For $9.95, you get a giant bowl of vegetable broth, thin and crispy strips of fried tofu, loads of tender veggies, rice noodles, and a pile of herbs and bean sprouts. You can make it as spicy as you want with the spice rack! I especially love how they prepare the tofu for this dish.

As far as service goes, it’s always fast and friendly. Even when we go for takeout, they have meals together quickly.

If you are in the RVA, please go check out this restaurant! There’s something for everyone, even any non-vegans in your life. They are locally owned, and it’s great to support your neighbors! Make it a local business date night and visit Intermission Beer, a woman owned brewery next door, after your meal!

Do you love Asian food, too? Have you visited this restaurant? I’d love to hear about it! As always, I hope you all are safe and healthy.
