Hit up some Pho on this 54 degree weather day to soothe the soul and it was decent pho, Id give it a 2/5, the greens were wilted, the service was 5 star however. The Taro bubble tea was almost to thick, could still taste the powder while you slurped. The pho itself was decent, good broth, good meat, excellent noodles, however the smell lacked what I look for in a Pho, I’d be back if I ran out of other Pho options.
Well 30 is fucking old it seems these days and what better way to celebrate than a huge bowl of Pho which is Nectar of the Gawds. I also got an Amazon Echo and some cool Disney Vinylmation toys which is sweet, especially when I can control all my Phillips Hue lights with Echo, “Alexa, turn off lamp”, “Alexa turn on bathroom light 30%” it’s fucking sweet and It’s the future if you don’t have this setup your living in the 50’s bro lol. I’ll post more swag later.
Walked in like a pho pimp, almost walked out since no one helped us for a few minutes. However, the service was slow if you know what I mean, but the food was delicious! I’m not counting off for our waiter forgetting my steamed rice because I was already full when I remembered I ordered it. The restaurant had one other table on a Saturday evening at 5PM, that’s why we almost walked out as well.
However, we ordered the ham spring rolls with peanut sauce which was some of the best I’ve ever had, not a wilt or brown spot on the lettuce and the shrimp was fresh as can be. I got a big bowl of Pho with extra brisket and it had that perfect smell, perfect oily texture and the brisket was tender and tasty and NOMNOM.
This was my all time top 3 PHO I’ve ever had, and I’ve been to over 50 different Pho style restaurants. I left so PHO, don’t mean to be braggin but PHO REAL.
Some okay pho.
Was ashamed it was rated high in Houston, was def not top 5 pho.
