For a relatively short strip, Coventry Road has accumulated more than its fair share of independent ethnic eateries. Well, the Village can now claim a new pho place as one of its own. Three weeks ago, Pho & Rice opened up in the former Winds of Change-Game Exchange-Record Exchange space at 1780 Coventry.

Despite a small kitchen, the shop cooks up a full Vietnamese (and, to a lesser extent, Thai) menu of starters, salads, noodle soups, vermicelli and rice dishes, and stir-fries. There are a dozen phos, served small ($8.95) and large ($9.95), with the usual noodle, beef and poultry fillings. The broth is made in house.

The pho is solid, if a bit salty, and the beef was sliced a too thickly and arrived the opposite of rare. It's served with a handful of bean sprouts, a bunch of basil, and a few jalapenos and lime wedges.

For a quick and convenient bowl of pho, you should definitely consider Pho & Rice, which is open every day of the week for lunch and dinner.
