Although they are very new, I was happy to see they were already listed on Yelp and Zomato (possibly by the owners), saving me the hassle -- especially on Zomato, where it can take admin a while to verify a new restaurant.
Even without the 25% off Grand Opening special, price for portion is really decent (prices below do NOT include the 25% off Grand Opening special). A large bowl of phở (it only comes in one size) was under $10. They even have a "no meat" phở for $5. I didn't get that but presumably it is just broth with noodles and basic garnishes.
- Special phở ($8.50) comes with "everything" (NOT)
- When I asked the server what it came with, he said "everything". Really? Turned out, no.
- Initially it came with thinly sliced rare beef still cooking in the hot broth. (Noodle pictures below, first and second).
- When I asked the server to double check, he came back from the kitchen and apologized, saying more toppings were coming, whereupon he brought a smaller bowl of broth and some more types of meat (picture 3; picture 4 is of all meats mixed together in the main bowl) -- looked like a different cut of beef, shredded intestine (?), and some sort of firm and slightly sweet meatball.
- If you order the special, ask first what it contains. They are really new so it may not be exactly the same as what I got. No way it comes with "everything" though.
- Tasty broth, huge portion. Even without the grand opening discount ($8.50) this is a good price for portion as far as phở goes.
- Steamed Dumpling ($7) with pork and shrimp served in banana wrapping
- By "banana wrapping" they meant banana leaf.
- The "dumpling" is more like a kinda sticky dough possibly from rice flour or tapioca flour. Very similar to Singapore Oyster Omelette (or luak) minus the egg.
- Token filling of strangely orange shrimp and chunks of ham.
- Interesting to try, but not that tasty and at basically $1 a piece, not really worth it unless you really like the novelty.
- Grilled Lemongrass Chicken on Steamed Rice ($9) served with green salad and carrot pickle
- My friend asked for the rice to be substituted with vermicelli and they allowed it with no fuss.
- Tender, tasty grilled chicken. None of the provided hoisin sauce was necessary.
We were too full to try any of the desserts, which include the currently popular shaved ice.
