Alton Brown Knows Good Pho, Adds Trip to Houston Favorite During Weekend Visit

The Good Eats legend concludes Houston tour at a popular Vietnamese restaurant.

If you've been living under a rock, Alton Brown came to town over the weekend and brought along a healthy appetite. The Food Network fixture ended the last leg of his Edible Inevitable Tour with a back-to-back performance Saturday. While in town, Brown made his food rounds with stops at Blacksmith, Common Bond and Killen's Barbecue documented through social media. All except one.

After seeing a tweet from Eater regarding his recent dining adventure in Houston, Brown noted his last undocumented stop in town: Pho Binh.


Pho Binh is one Houston's most regarded spots for pho in Houston, landing on Houston Chronicle's Alison Cook's 100 list and shout-out on Food Republic. It's also one of Houston's essential restaurants, landing a spot on the coveted Eater 38.

No word if Brown hit up the original Pho Binh trailer near Hobby Airport or Daniel Nguyen's second location on Westheimer, but if not, he'll get a pass this time. The Good Eats legend proved in one day that he definitely knows (or knows where to go for) good eats in Houston. Much respect.
