Wow I dug these photos out from the recesses of my laptop! This visit was during winter and my brother and I were looking for a place for a late dinner. I’ve never been to Pho King Thai Hoa before but he’s been there a few times with friends and he said it was pretty decent. Uhhhh I didn’t know whether I could trust that judgement… but I decided to give it a try anyways!
Lemongrass Chicken with Egg on Rice ($8.00):
Not quite sure why the rice is in the shape of a brick… I remember the lemongrass chicken being a bit tough and over charred. The best part was the egg because you can’t screw that up!
Pho Dac Biet ($7.95):
For a second, I couldn’t remember which pho I ordered and the lack of ingredients didn’t help. The portion was smaller than other restaurants. The broth was flavourful with a bit of sweetness though. The noodles weren’t good though since they were clumped together and had a strange packaged(?) taste to them.
Special Banh Mi:
We also decided to get a banh mi and it wasn’t too bad. The bread was relatively fluffy with a crispy exterior. The fillings were a bit sparse, but the cold cuts were still flavourful. As a whole, the sandwich wasn’t too bad.
