I used to hit the Pho Junkies truck on Wednesdays with several people from my office. I read the reviews for Phonation and was a bit apprehensive about going with some of the reviews, but apparently, Phonation truck also reads the reviews and they have improved from what I can tell. The food is spicy, the broth is amazing and the noodles are cooked perfectly. I have the perfect amount of meat as well. Impressed. I am not 100% sold yet, but I will be going back. Thank you for continuing a tradition that started when I was at FEMA.

Today my friend and I tried Phonation after being in the mood for Pho all week--we were excited to try it! I had the steak and brisket, she had the steak. The good news--the broth is flavorful and nearly perfect! The bad news--there were NO sauces in the to-go baggy! What?? How in the world do you expect me to make the perfect blend of spicy Pho soup without Sriracha?? So that's a big head shaker for me.
One other thumbs down item for both of us is the skimpy amount of meat--too much noodle, way way too skimpy on the meat. So, for $9 bucks of my hard-earned money, could a lady get a little more meat please Phonation?
Overall, the Phonation food truck is convenient and the broth is good but please, give us some more meat and include the sauces in the to-go baggy. Thanks!

Tasty Broth. So far, my favorite Pho truck. I have only ordered the Pho, so I can't comment on the other food. In comparison to the competitors I have tried, the broth has much more flavor.

Broth was very good. However, the beef was very fatty, not good chewey but thick hard fatty. Also, they put noodles directly in the steaming hot broth so by the time you get back to your office, the noodles are mushy.

The pho broth was very flavorful; however, I thought they skimped on the meat. I also think their mechanism for pouring the broth over the noodles and meat might have been a bit too hot as the noodles got over-cooked quickly. I'll try them again, but not for the pho. Sorry, I'll stick with Pho-Junkies for my pho.


pretty good sandwich. nice crisp french bread is a good start. The bbq pork was tender and well seasoned...delicious

The broth is flovorful but not the best I have ever had. All the fixin's are available, if you as for more they will give it to you. And the steak serving size was perfect for working day lunch! My biggest complaint was I think the noodles were a little overcooked by the time I got back to my desk.

OMG! I want to walk right back to that truck and order another bowl. The broth is jam-packed with flavor and the beef is tender and delicious. Definitely one of the best bowls of pho I've had. Ever. And I eat a lot of pho. This was my first time eating at Phonation but something tells me that I will be back. A lot!

I ordered pho from this truck when it came through L'Enfant Plaza a couple of weeks ago and fell in love-it is by far one of the best pho trucks in the city. The broth is very flavorful, the ratio of noodles/meat/broth is perfect and the bahn mi really rocks. Please add L'Enfant to your rounds more often--we've missed you!

Rachel (of a former DC Pho truck), launched a new truck, named Phonation! Not only has she brought back the usual pho menu, but she offers a new menu item: the Burrito Banhmi.
