Another take on Friend or Pho?

A recent Richmond.com review of Friend or Pho? get at the gripes of the nay-sayers:

If you’ve come to this review looking for such a debate, you’re in the wrong place. To lump Friend or Pho into this category is missing the point. If it were going for Vietnamese authenticity, you wouldn’t hear a mix of the Pixies and Sonic Youth pumped into the dining room. The fact that the joint is named Friend or Pho, completely ignoring the fact that it’s actually pronounced, “Fuh”, signals that the owners aren’t interested in winning any debates on how their pho would measure up in Hanoi.
