43rd Express (also known as Pho 43Express) is a family-run Vietnamese restaurant that has specialized in pho, the wildly popular beef noodle soup, since 1993. There are 20 pho options, including the Pho Dac Biet (house specialty pho), served with rice noodles and slices of brisket, tendon and tripe submerged in the restaurant’s intensely flavored beef broth. Rice platters like Com Bi Cha Thit Nuong, which features savory shredded pork skin, grilled pork and slices of steamed egg meatloaf, offer a flavorful alternative to pho. But many diners stream into this no-frills eatery for its delicious macaron cookies and macaron ice cream sandwiches, featuring Eastern ingredients like taro, Thai tea and panang.
