Hong Meas is a little neighborhood Vietnamese/Thai/Cambodian place (with some of the usual generic Ameri-Asian choices as well) that offers inexpensive pho fast, which is why I have frequented the place. I usually get the wheat (yellow) noodles with beef. The noodles tend to be a sticky lump and a little too soft. The beef is pretty good, but there is usually not very much of it. The broth needs some chili sauce and some more seasoning (may be due to the beef, noodles, and green onion living in a separate container from the broth when ordering takeout). It also comes with bean sprouts and lime. There is "nothing to write home about" when thinking of the pho from Hong Meas in my opinion, but in its defense it is a great value ($4.50, cheap) and local (easily accessible in E.P.). Overall the pho is acceptable if you have a craving for pho but are in a rush and just want to head home with some of your favorite food. DISCLAIMER: I have only had this pho as a take out item I have never eaten in Hong Meas.
