In the Land of Noodle Soups, pho is surely queen, if not king. Its status derives from wondrous flavors and textures (aromatic broth, slurpable noodles, pungent fresh herbs, savory meats, crunchy sprouts, fiery chilies, bracing lime juice) and mystical morning-after restorative powers. Among Dorchester’s many fine pho joints, Le stands out for its limpid, light, easy-on-the-MSG broths, sparkling yet humble dining room, and terrific dishes like duck salad and Vietnamese crêpes for when your crowd wants more than soup.
