And this pho was lip-smacking good! You could really taste the beef in the noodle soup. In terms of consistency, the base is a little thick. It did say that it’s a “12-hour aromatic beef noodle soup intensified with a beef reduction”. The whole soup was proof of that.

The colors on this dish were just lovely. I loved how they plated it with the banana leaf and wooden plate as its background. Paired with crispy spring rolls and veggies, the main highlight still was the chicken. On its own, it was very flavorful. It was grilled well retaining that moisture inside the meat. I never got to try the spicy sauce (sweet chili I think) because I instantly dived into the peanut one. It was good with or without the sauce.
This wasn’t on their menu yet. It was just offered by the server. And I wish they would make this a permanent one. It was a good dessert to end one’s meal. The purple rice balls wasn’t that sweet, and had this seemingly glutinous consistency. Inside, there were some gelatin bits that I would assume are mango-flavored. It came with this cream sauce that added flavor to the dessert. Sadly, the mango that came with it was a bit sour. Nonetheless, this was one satisfying dessert.
Yeah, it was pho-king delicious. I was supposed to try their banh-mi but maybe next time. For sure I’ll be back because like that bull, I was looking way up in the sky with a smile on my face with every bite of their dishes. 😛
