To understand who we are, it is important to understand the history of Pho.  Pho was originally born in Northern Vietnam in the late 19th century and was primarily served on the streets by food vendors carrying the Pho and their cooking stuffs using a shoulder pole with attached containers on each side.  On one side, the containers would house bowls, chopsticks, spices, noodles and beef and on the other side, a small coal stove with readymade beef broth.  These food vendors would walk from street to street and alley to alley and peddle their delicious concoction.  Word spread quickly throughout the North of not only Pho’s delicious and savoring taste but also its healing and invigorative qualities.  

It was not until 1954 that Pho spread southward as the country was divided into North and South and as Pho became prevalent it also took on regional variation in recipe and taste.  The truly original and truly authentic Pho is thus from the North and Northern style Pho is a subtle masterpiece characterized by a clear and delicate broth that is simple yet complex.

Pho Cong Ly was founded in 1989 by Ha Tran and his wife Mai Tran a renowned chef.  Mai and Ha are originally from Hanoi (Northern Vietnam) and migrated to Saigon (South Vietnam) in 1954 when the country split.  Chef Mai comes from a long line of renowned northern chefs and culinarians, and, as a matter of fact, chef Mai’s culinary lineage can be traced back to the beginnings of Pho in the North and the popular food vendors that peddled them on the streets of Hanoi.  Since Pho Cong Ly opened in 1989, we have kept true to our Northern roots by serving up only truly original and authentic Northern style Pho that is untainted since its inception in the late 1800s.  Washingtonian Magazine has labeled us “Pho Pioneer” and we are the Pho of choice for Pho aficionados and purists.  We are proud and honored to serve our customers not just a bowl of original and authentic northern style Pho but – with every sip and slurp – a piece of culinary history that dates back over 100 years.  Today we strive to serve our original and authentic northern style Pho and many other noodle and grill specialties in a clean, comfortable and modern atmosphere with excellent service.  We hope to have an opportunity to serve you very soon!
