Experiencing the Heights of Soup at Stock
Brian Freedman sings the praises of Stock, the Vietnamese cafe on Girard Avenue in Fishtown.
Beef pho tastes as deep as some sort of soupy Mariana Trench, the liquid exquisitely, exuberantly rich in character. Mushroom pho is built on a stunning umami-rich broth. Both of them, with a generous scattering of herbs and their perfectly cooked rice noodles, are large enough to share but good enough that you won’t want to.
