I first visited this place soon after it opened and yesterday returned for lunch with a friend. We shared two appetisers, spiced calamari and salt and pepper shrimp. Then I had beef pho, while my friend went for the vegetarian version.
The appetisers were delicious and flavourful; the calamari a little on the spicy side but not excessively, just the way I like it. A large complimentary glass of ice water, promptly refilled by a friendly waitress, came in handy.
The portions were HUGE. The appetisers practically filled us but we had no choice but to 'suffer' through our phos. These arrived sizzling hot and were ENORMOUS. Mine had a generous helping of beef slices floating on top of a bowlful of noodles. Sprouts, mint leaves (fresh and plentiful), lime and delicious sauce (a combination of two kinds) arrived on the side. The stock (oxtail) was rich in flavour and structure.
As a carnivore, I am sceptical of vegetarian dishes but my friend convinced me to taste the vegetable broth. It was heavenly: rich, flavourful, buttery and, at the same time, light. Tofu slices looked very appetising and I will try this version next time.
Regrettably, neither of us could finish all the noodles but we will when we come again for dinner!
There was one more pleasant surprise in store: the bill was only about $37 with tax!
This place is a great value. The food is delicious and the portions are huge.
My only regret is that I live and work too far away to come here regularly.
