As the weather takes a chilly turn, our stomachs stop rumbling for refreshing dishes like salads and sashimi and we start craving warm and comforting food instead. One of those autumn and winter meals that's top of mind for us is pho. The combination of the broth, protein and noodles fills us up just right and leaves us warm from the inside out. 

In the mood for a big bowl of pho? We've found the best pho in Adelaide for you to enjoy. Don't worry, you can thank us later - with a full belly.

Pho Minh

We all know the unspoken rule that the most authentic pho comes from the restaurants that aren't flashy or incredibly aesthetic, but instead put their entire focus into their food. And Pho Minh is no exception. What they lack in social media presence, they make up for in big, flavourful bowls of pho. Each spoonful feels like a warm hug, and you'll find yourself wanting to tip your bowl at the end to slurp up every last dreg.

Adelaide Pho

Adelaide Pho

One of Adelaide's oldest Vietnamese restaurants, Adelaide Pho is a family-run business that focusses on traditional Vietnamese practices when it comes to making this noodle soup dish. Owner Lieu Tran took over her mother's business, and has been running this restaurant, along with several franchises in the outer suburbs, ever since. The restaurant is not extravagant or lavish, but the food is filled with love, and what Lieu Tran believes to be healing properties. We recommend getting some of the spring rolls to have alongside your pho.

Yen Linh

Yen Linh

Originally opening in Croydon in 2004, Yen Linh has since grown since its humble beginnings 20 years ago. The local favourite, known best for it's traditional and authentic pho, has since expanded to open a second venue in the CBD. And if you feel like a drink alongside your soup (because while liquid, soup doesn't really feel like a hydrating beverage), their avocado smoothies are rich, creamy, and the perfect contrast to the warmth and saltiness of the pho.
