It's a shame Pho Bida Saigon is gone, what with its divey atmosphere and old Vietnamese men out front playing cards or dice and casting suspicious looks upon any roundeye who dared walk in... I think you would've felt "at home," so to speak. Its classier sister joint, Pho Bida Vietnam on rue Nationale has just as good a bowl of pho, but none of the war-survivor earnestness of the old one.

I want to thank all those of my loyal readers who have recommended Pho Places in Paris by comments here, email or in person. Since this urge seizes me only once a decade, I may not have another impulse for quite a while, but I appreciate the tips.

I've eaten good pho at Pho Dong-Phuong in the 11th (Bellevue), and when it's closed there's a big restaurant across the street that's served me well. http://www.whitings-writings.com/bistro_reviews/pho.htm
