While waiting for our orders, basil leaves, lemon and bean sprouts were served. These condiments are for the pho or noodle soup.
|Basil Leaves, Bean Sprouts and Lemon|
For starters, we ordered their Fresh Spring Roll (127 php). We always order this whenever we visit. It is vermicelli (glass noodle), carrots, onion leaves wrapped in lumpia wrapper. It is served with a thick hoisin sauce topped with peanut bits. It is delicious because it is light, refreshing and fun to eat. You feel the noodles tickle your tongue as you eat it.

We also ordered Breaded Tofu with Mushroom and Red Pepper Sauce (195 php). This was served very hot that we needed to wait until it cooled down a bit. I loved how it had a hard shell because it was breaded yet soft and melts in your mouth once the breading is off. The sauce complements the breadings and tofu well too.I wanted to order a spicy noodle soup but they ran out of all their spicy variety so I opted their Pho Nam, Chin, Gan, Bo Vien (Flack, brisket, tendon and meatballs pho) (199.80 php) It is a beef broth based noodle soup with flack, tendon,brisket, meatballs, onion rings topped with green onions and parsley. I added a lot of Basil Leaves, beans sprout and one slice of lemon. This made the soup more flavorful by being more fragant and a little bit sour. But I felt like eating something spicy so I added some drops of "Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce". I loved it! I enjoyed the fragant hot and sour flavor that I finished my pho until the last drop.
