Quynh Trinh — the voluble and hilarious woman whom everyone calls “Q’ – has lately been serving pho in addition to her famous banh mi sandwiches at We Suki Suki, the East Atlanta Village shoebox restaurant where she holds court. Served as dine-in option only, this pho is homey and simple, with a few slips of beef and a spicy riptide of jalapeño pepper flavoring a mild, homemade-tasting broth that you can doctor at the table.
While I was there, Q announced to the room that she has reached an agreement with the owners of East Atlanta Thai & Sushi a few doors up to start serving pho there — a project plans to call Pho Q. We’ll let you know more as it develops.
Clearly, I will need to do a compare and contrast between Pho Q and Duluth’s What the Pho?, if only to make copy editors at the AJC very antsy.
In the meantime, you can try Q’s pho at We Suki Suki and wash it down with a banh mi. I recommend the barbecued pork version. See? Doesn’t this look good?
