Want to grab some lunch without breaking the bank? Than Brothers is one of several places on the University District Ave (University Way) specializing in Pho, a Vietnamese noodle soup. The soup is good, but it's really about the cream puffs. We each received a complimentary puff with our pho. Another Than Brothers restuarant on Broadway is near a house where my fiancee and his friends gather every Friday for a gaming night - and one of his friend often goes to Than Brothers just to get a dozen cream puffs for the group.
As for the soup, there are a number of choices of pho, and you will be given jalepeno peppers, basil, lime, and lots of sauces to put in your soup if you want more flavor. The medium bowl was too much for me to eat, and they serve a large and X-tra large as well. A meal will probably be under $10.
