I love working downtown since there's such a wide range of delicious lunch spots that are for the most part relatively cheap. Nicky's is one of those examples. Although I love me a vietnamese sandwich, something about a nice bowl of pho makes me uber happy especially with the cold weather.

Our Menu
Beef Pho *
A solid beef pho and one of my favorites in the area which is surprising that so many people do it so shitty. Tribeca Viet Cafe - I'm looking at you ($13 for subpar pho at viet cafe vs $9 for solid pho at Nicky's). The broth here is very solid, the noodles are nicely al dente and they come packed with a ton of ingredients - a lot of bean sprouts, cilantro, green onions, jalapeno slices which are awesome with the broth, and beef tendon/brisket.

Rating System
--- What the F - in a bad way | (no stars - poor to average) | * Good | ** Great | *** What the F – in a good way

Closing Comments
100% my go to soup place and I need to check out the sandwiches, since the name of the shop has sandwiches in it. One day...

The Nicky's in the East Village makes the best Bahn Mi. Not fancy (the way it should be) at all. $5 and you get a great sammich for when you are on the go.
