I've grown tired of pho as I've gotten older. Most places spice it too heavily with cinnamon/star anise. With the light mouth feel of pho, I prefer it to also taste a bit cleaner. Northern style (chicken broth) pho is pretty good, or just good ole' chiu chow noodle soup. If you're in SF, go to Hai Ky in Tenderloin for the food of my peoples, and enjoy a hot cup of soy milk. Ramen is good, but I sense a trend of very heavy and fatty tonkotsu.
