RVA Mag ‘Best of RVA’ reader’s poll part 1

by | Oct 20, 2015 | POLITICS

It’s been nearly two years since we last polled our readership about their favorite people, places, and things in our wonderful city. In recent months, we’ve seen growth and changes taking place around town that transform the cultural landscape in a lot of ways.


It’s been nearly two years since we last polled our readership about their favorite people, places, and things in our wonderful city. In recent months, we’ve seen growth and changes taking place around town that transform the cultural landscape in a lot of ways.

It started to seem like our last poll was getting a bit out of date — and of course, we were also wondering about a whole bunch of things we forgot to ask last time. Therefore, we came up with a whole new list of questions, which ended up being much longer than the last one was.

We didn’t want to overwhelm you, so this is just the first half, the rest will come around later, so keep an eye out.

Until then, learn about the best places to get tacos, pizza, and brews in our fair city — as determined by you!

Favorite RVA Noodle Bar: Mekong

Mekong gets most of the press it gets for beer, but it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that this Vietnamese restaurant’s menu is built on the strength of its pho. Next time you’re up there drinking a limited edition craft brew out of a glass boot, get yourself a bowl. You’ll be glad you did.

2nd Place: Sticky Rice
Honorable Mention: Pho So 1

RVA’s Favorite Taco: Don’t Look Back
