Ali Wong extolls the healing virtues of Pho Binh

While in Houston on her Milk and Money tour, comedian Ali Wong and her husband stopped in at the Pho Binh location on Southwest Freeway and found that the broth here has healing powers. “We were way cranky after a grueling flight with both kids and then finding out that two of our crucial bags did not make it onto the plane,” Wong wrote on Instagram. “But Pho Binh has the power to heal marital tension! Their broth is the best I’ve had in the past couple of years.”
