My first memory of Pho Hoa Vietnamese Noodle House was years ago, when I thought my tastebuds would instantly appreciate a spring roll. I can’t believe I went through a picky eater phase. It’s surprising how I turned out (with my love for Asian cuisine). Older and wiser when it comes to food, yes?
First things first, here’s a photo to make this post somehow timely.
I was craving for this since I had some pho in Palawan. No post about that here because I can’t find the photo of that delicious noodle soup. Their large bowl sure is large.
Apart from the tender pieces of beef, I also liked the meatballs that went with my noodle soup. Very chewy and flavorful. I wonder if I can find something like those in local supermarkets. This came with a plate of herbs, bean sprouts, and slices of lemon.
This sizzling plate was a surprise. It’s has a very distinct taste, yet a bit expensive compared to other places that serve the same dish. There must be a sweet sauce glazed on the pork chops to achieve that flavor.
And so I finally appreciated the spring rolls. I prefer eating it without the sauce (because it’s too nutty for me). It seems like a healthy meal although making it looks meticulous, even more meticulous than sushi. And since I’ve had far too many experiments in the kitchen that didn’t really turn out as planned, I’d rather eat here than make one myself. Haha!
