    This Asiatown restaurant is named for the popular Vietnamese dish, "Pho," a noodle and beef broth combination garnished with mint, lemon grass and other condiments. Additions to the basic dish are limited only by your imagination, and frequently include tiny meatballs, beef or chicken pieces, shrimp, and vegetables.

    Pho is the most popular dish at #1 Pho, but by no means the only one. The friendly eatery serves a variety of Vietnamese fare, including light and delicious spring rolls.

    Minh Anh Vietnamese Restaurant

    Minh Anh, on Cleveland's near west side, is an affordable and delicious family-run eatery on the near west side, offering excellent soups, spring rolls, and a variety of Vietnamese specialties. Entrees range from simple noodle dishes, garnished with peanuts and julienned carrots and cucumbers to more exotic dishes, such as frog legs cooked in coconut milk. I've eaten here at least twenty times and everything I've had has been delicious.

    Considered by many to be the best Asian restaurant in Northeast Ohio, this unassuming Cleveland Heights restaurant serves a diverse mixture of Japanese high-quality sashimi grade sushi and Malaysian fare, due to two different chefs. Both are sensational.
