Taste of Vietnam

Nothing better on a rainy, miserable day than a bowl of piping hot pho. This pho place is on Oak and Broadway, closer to where I live. It’s simple and home-like, and all around comforting. What I liked most was it wasn’t too salty!IMG_7350

This is my well done beef pho! Ready to be dressed with…IMG_7351

My favorite part, bean sprouts!


We ordered a “bruschette” which was just meatballs. I was expecting like bruschetta, like bread and tomatoes and stuff. Josh ordered these, and even though I was expecting something else, they were quite good.

It’s strange. This place had a more homely feel than most other pho places. It was laid back and the staff were kind. I got into a conversation about nail polish with the lady at the register. I’d give this place a 3.5/5. Their service is quite good, but the pho will either be something you enjoy comfort-wise, or might not because it’s plainer than some other establishments Gastrofork has gone to. Depends on what kind of pho eater you are – the comfort kind or the heaps of meat and flavour kind.

I would come back though to sit back, relax and have dinner here.
