We Suki Suki owner talking “Pho Q”

Pho at We Suki Suki

Pho at We Suki Suki

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?

It’s not April Fools day, right? A restaurant named Pho Q? That’s an invitation to a black eye, or worse. I hope I never get caught speeding while going there. I can hear the officer now, “And where do you think you’re going so fast?” If I reply, “Pho Q, officer”, someone’s going to have to bail me out of jail.

The AJC online Food section has really gone to pot. What’d you do with everyone, John? Not bad enough that we have to pay for Jenny’s stupid opinions, which I refuse to do, but no more Jon, no more restaurant inspections? Useless. Think I will discontinue wasting my time…

Pho and ramen seem to be the new hot menu items in Atlanta. Who has the best ITP?

SP: In all honesty, I think So Ba in EAV has the best Pho I’ve had in the city.

For pho nothing can beat Pho Dai Loi on Buford Highway.

I second Pho Dai Loi #2 on Buford Hwy. Their com dishes are also good, but the phở is the star.

SP, check out Eat It Atlanta blog. She just did a roundup of pho this week. And if you scroll
down to the replies, she provides a like to a similar article she wrote 3 years ago on ramen.

I like Pho Dai Loi #2 a lot but prefer the pho at Nam Phuong across the street. Quan Ba 9 has an interesting, highly seasoned version.

I would think We Suki Suki would make the copy editors nervous as well, John. ;-)
