Fresh, flavoursome, spicy and healthy are usually the words that come to mind when describing food from the Far East. A particular restaurant that lives up to this tag is the Vietnamese restaurant PhoVietnamese Street Food.
Dotted around England ( with seven eateries in total) Pho has provided an alternative option to those wishing to tantalise their taste buds with heat. Only best brought out through Asian cooking.
Pho is well known for not only being London's first ever street food restaurant, but also offering a distinctive Pho soup (comprised of over 13 different fillings that you can choose from) which is the national dish of Vietnam. Surprisingly filling, the traditional dish lives up to its ancient roots, providing the diner with a legitimate Asian dish, for a reasonable price tag.
Don't just take a grinding halt at the signature dish, but proceed to the other tantal ising items on offer, such as the Lemon Grass Beef Bún and the Vietnamese Fried Spring Rolls, called Cha Gio. You won't be disappointed.
The atmosphere at Pho was quite lively, a contrast from its dimply lit romantic interior. The Soho location is quite busy during the week so it's advised to have your drinking hat on and to indulge in a few beverages at the bar before heading to your table. Unfortunately Pho do not take reservations, a common occurrence at many London restaurants I have noticed.
If you want to experience Pho with a little more ease, I suggest you head to Westfield Stratford where you will find the Vietnamese kiosk in the overflowing food court.
Fresh and flavoursome, Pho brings that little bit of Asian edge to your life.
