To start, I ordered summer rolls, a light rice paper filled with noodles, mint, and fresh shrimp, served with peanut sauce. The rolls were plain but fresh and tasty and perfect for two people to share.
Next, I ordered a regular bowl of the vegetarian noodle sou, tofu pho, that comes with lightly fried tofu, scallions, and sliced onions. The plate of aromatics that accompanies the soup was fresh: Thai basil, lime, bean sprouts, and jalapeños. Sriracha is also placed on the table if you want to add extra spice. My mother ordered the traditional beef pho in a large size that came with thin slices of beef on top, all in a beef broth. While the pho came out fairly quickly, the soup itself could have been a bit hotter and steaming. The noodles were also overcooked leaving no bite and slightly mushy texture. The aromatics add incredible fragrance and overall flavor to the light broth, yet we've had better pho before. Perhaps it was an off day, as we left with many customers still seated and slurping away.
