On the East side of Black Mountain Road, attached to Lucky Seafood Supermarket is Pho Lucky. Here it’s all about the broth for me; on the best days it’s a light brown in color, hints of anise and clove rise from the bowl, and dots of oil are spread all along the surface of the soup. You’ll catch a touch of sweetness from the scalded onions along with a decent mild beef flavor. My favorites among the protein choices are the brisket and beef tendon. In fact, Pho Lucky makes my favorite version of Bo Kho (Vietnamese style Beef Stew) in San Diego, which is full of wonderful beef tendon.
