Been craving so long for this vietnamese noodle (read: pho) since first time we tried it.. Then today finally got chance again to had it for our lunch.. Such a comforting food in such a gloomy day.. 🙂
During lunch conversation, one of colleague told us about how to pronounce “PHO”.. He mention it like saying “FUR” in English but without “R”, haha really never know it before.. Mybe Vietnamese will laugh when we pronounce “PHO” as “PO”.. LOL!!!
I order beef slice and beef ball pho with soup.. Pho with soup served with condiments: red chili, mint leaves, lime, bean sprout, chinese paisley and vietnamese chili.
These condiments will be mixed into the soup to make it more fragrant.. The chili in the small saucer taste a bit sweet and sour (but not too extreme like sour of Thai food), it’s just nice for dipping sliced beef into it..
Here is the PHO.. The soup is clear and taste very light, the sliced beef so tender and some still have some collagen intact on it yummi! and the beefball so bounchy when i chewed it.. The noodles made from rice similar with kway tiaw but the size slightly thinner..
My colleague said this pho stall hv quite authentic taste of Vietnamese cuisine. Really worth to try.. During lunchtime they always full, sometimes we ended on the bar counter.
But today we can get a seat for 5 of us after waiting abt 5min.. Really had a perfect lunch for this cold and gloomy day..
Next time will bring my hubby there to try.. Since my hubby cannot eat beef so mybe i will suggest him to try dry pho, which is also savouring, they have Pork Chop and Chicken Chop Dry Pho..
One bowl of this soup cost $8.00 (subject to 7% GST and 10% service charge)
