A huge bowl of steaming, aromatic broth, piled with rice noodles, your choice of protein and enough bean sprouts, basil and seasonings to make the perfect Pho. Truly an enjoyable meal! Also love their fresh, (not fried) spring rolls. Right in the middle of Penn Ave in West Reading.

Walked in to order take out. Walked up to the counter and the person did not seem know what was going on. Did not even know where a menu was. Place had people lounging around at the tables, that appeared to be friends. Took the menu, and left. Compared the prices, and will go to other Vietnamese places in the area that have people at the counter that will appreciate you business.

Van's is the go to place for Pho in this area. Love their broth as it is perfectly balanced with star anise and other seasonings. Choose you protein or go with veggies. Bean sprouts, basil, Sriracha and oyster sauce round it out! Throw in a couple slices of jalapeño peppers if you want. Their shrimp rolls (fresh not fried in rice paper with peanut sauce) are also delicious.

I consider myself a bit of a pho connoisseur and this place has top notch pho. We got take out and they sent all the trimmings and rare/raw beef which poached perfectly in the hot broth. Banh Mi was also great. Will be back. Plenty of parking at a lot across the street, so don't worry if all the on-street parking is taken.
