  • Good for: quiet meals, take out

    Craving for pho one evening, I made a quick search on my phone and found this place. The place had great reviews, but I wasn’t too sure about it because of its generic name. I was surprised to find that the outside of the store looked a lot like the Vietnamese food joints you would find in places like the U.S. Located on the side of the street with big glass doors, tiled walls, and a bottle of sriracha sauce on every table, this was it.

    Walking inside, the place didn’t have many tables but it wasn’t too full on a Wednesday evening either. The crowd here are mostly foreigners, and the waitress here speak English and Chinese. The décor wasn’t great, but somehow the place had a bit of a cozy and homey feeling to it.

    I ordered the beef special on the menu, which is their all in one pho with slice beef, brisket, tendon, and tripe (58 yuan), along with an avocado smoothie (36 yuan). Throw in 10 more yuan and you can get an extra-large bowl. All in all the pho wasn’t bad but it missed a touch of authenticity in taste. I blame it on the noodles. The broth was delicious though and so was the smoothie.

    Service was fast as well since there wasn’t that many people and there was always one waitress standing by.

    Would come back again for a quick bite after work!
