Bracket Introduction

Bust out those pom poms, foodies. With the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments starting this week, we’re joining the fun of bracket competitions with a piping hot face-off of our own.

We asked you to share your favorite bowl of ph in Seattle with us, and now — thanks to you + the help of a random generator — we have the official lineup for our bracket.

How it works 🍜

Beginning today, we will host several voting rounds within our newsletters and social channels to determine Seattle’s best phở. Who moves on is up to you. Vote for your favorites — the restaurant with more votes moves on. Simple as that. We’ll go until we have a champion, which will be announced in our newsletter later this month. You will be able to vote once per round.

How to participate 🍜

Vote for the phở spot you’d like to see advance to round two using this poll. You can vote for all four spots or as little as one. Once we count all the votes, we’ll share an updated bracket and new poll in an upcoming newsletter.
