At Black Pepper Pho we pride ourselves on providing high quality food, excellent cocktails, and wonderful desserts at inexpensive prices, offering you the kind of dining experience we ourselves appreciate and enjoy.
Phở, our signature dish, is made by slow cooking beef for more than 6 hours to develop the full flavor of the broth. Spices including cinnamon, clove, and star anise are added to create the distinctive aroma of pho. This soup is traditionally served with fresh rice noodles, thinly sliced beef, and a plate of fresh vegetables and herbs.
Bún, grilled meat with rice noodle bowls feature Vietnamese egg roll and marinated beef, pork, chicken, or shrimp served on rice noodles along with a variety of vegetables and herbs.
Almost everything on our menu is gluten-free due to the nature of traditional Vietnamese food. We now only use gluten-free soy sauce and our signature banana tempura dessert is now also gluten-free. We have a variety of dishes that are vegan as well as gluten-free.
Vietnamese cuisine emphasizes the balance of protein, vegetables, and starch. Our Pho soups, grilled dishes, and Banh Mi are made with high quality ingredients and are carefully balanced to provide a complete meal.
We do not use MSG or any other MSG-like additives in any of our foods. We are also a nut-free facility.
At Black Pepper Pho, we support local farmers and ranchers. We select organic and locally grown produce seasonally.
Our cocktail list is created from our favorite drinks we have experienced from around the world. The bar menu is selected to pair especially well with our appetizers.
Tea is served in our custom mugs made by a local artist, Julia Bonn. Jasmine and Green Tea are traditional to Vietnam, while others we simply enjoy and hope you will too.
Fresh Fruit Smoothies, Boba Tea, Vietnamese Coffee, and Thai Iced Tea are among our offerings to try along with any meal.
Huong's birthplace is BinhGia, a small farming village several hours from Saigon. The primary crop produced and exported is premium black peppercorn. The peppercorn vines grow on trees or brick towers and are harvested by hand when they reach optimal maturity. From this tradition comes the first part of our name.
Huong's grandmother was the first person in BinhGia to open an eating establishment focusing on Pho. Some of her earliest memories are of waking many hours before dawn and going to the restaurant with her grandmother to begin preparing the day’s Pho.
We hope you will enjoy your visit to Black Pepper Pho.
