Trying Something New at Pho *

2 comments



I love trying new foods, when I get the chance, and when I heard about a new Vietnamese restaurant opening on Bold Street, I knew I had to check it out. So I made a booking, grabbed my friend and headed off to see what Pho had to offer. 

When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely Codie, who showed us over to our table and gave us a brief introduction to the world of Pho, as I had never tried Vietnamese food before. She left us to settle in and have a look at the menu. 
 
The menu was incredible, was something there for everyone, whether you had tried pho before or not, the drinks section was great too, it took a while for us to decide what we wanted due to the vast array of choices but we settled on a lemonade and a pineapple, apple and mint juice, and they both tasted delicious , we got through a few each they were that good.

After our drinks we were brought a plate of prawn crackers and sweet chilli sauce to nibble on whilst we decided what to eat. The prawn crackers did not last long. When it came to ordering the food, we knew we had to go all out because everything looked so delicious. For starters we had the seasoned  crispy chicken wings served with sriracha (Canh Ga) and Homemade pork and lemongrass meatballs with lettece and herbs to wrap and dips.







These starters were incredible as soon as we started eating them we knew we loved them. The meatballs were full of flavor, and then when wrapped in lettuce and dipped in the peanut sauce was incredible. The crispy chicken wings were something else, we both immediately fell in love with them from the bite, they were so good we were considering ordering another plate. i would definitely recommend them if you ever visit. You will not be disappointed.

When it came to the main course I knew I wanted to try Pho, but there was so much choice it took me a while to decide hat to go for, eventually I decided on the Chicken breast in chicken stock Pho (Pho Ga) and I opted to add pieces of steak to my bowl. (It was a good choice) My friend chose the Shredded chicken salad with Asian herbs, peppers and a chilli ginger dressing.



To say they not only looked but smelled amazing when they arrived would be a massive understatement. The salad was so colourful and it was matched by how vibrant the flavours were. The chicken and steak pho I ordered was a perfect introduction to Vietnamese Pho, and I was not disappointed, the broth was incredibly flavoured, the noodles were silky and the meat was cooked perfectly, it was real comfort food, and I could happily go back and order it again.

 Once we had finished our meals, our lovely server Codie came ove and talked to us all about how Pho came to be and the history around the food which was really interesting to hear how much history and culture goes into making food. When it came to ordering dessert we were more than happy to oblige. I am not one to miss out on dessert. We chose the Pandan pancake with roasted coconut served with ice cream (Banh La Dua) and the Chocolate truffle slab served with ice cream (Banh so-co-la Truffle).

They were both incredibly delicious that we did genuinely want to ask for more, but we knew we wouldn't be able to move if we did that so one was enough. After our meal we were truly full from everything Pho had to offer, we ordered a couple more drinks and chatted before saying thank you and goodbye to the lovely staff who were amazing and looked after us really well. It is fair to say that I am fan of Pho now and would happily go back for a second round. If you want something new to try I highly recommend trying Pho, you will not be disappointed.
