So Pho

Vietnamese Cuisine is very common nowadays and easily spotted in the malls and I had noticed they are getting popular. So Pho is located in the basement of JEM with a spacious dining area.

It's concept of dining was straight forward and open where anyone who passes by their restaurant can actually have a full overview of it.

 Before we could actually grab our meals, So Pho recommended that its ok to chew noisly with our mouth wide open to have a UN-PHO-GETTABLE experience in So Pho.

Words for Customer

Personally, I had gradually enjoyed Vietnamese Cuisine after my trip to vietnam many years back and often my meals cant go without a big bowl of their Staple Pho and Summer Rolls. Thus, without much flipping of the menu, I already knew what will be my dishes.

 Their Vietnam imported Chilli sauce is readily available on every table.

Pho Dac Biet is classified under one of their chef's recommendation  which inclide Slice Beef, Brisket and Beef Balls with Vietnamese Pho in the fragrant soup. Having tasted their competitors Pho, I would say theirs are one of the better ones I had where the soup was light and tasty, not really loaded with MSG.

The beef balls comes in a pair and perhaps a coincidence that I had them "glued" together. It tasted abit mushy for me and I prefer something that requires a little more force to bit on.

Beef Balls

While the brisket and sliced beef are heavenly soaked in the delightful and nutritious broth with big cut of onions and garnish.

 For those who want to skip the beef version may order the chicken Pho, the taste of broth has a slight difference. And one can actually request garnish to be separated from the noodle dish.

Chicken Pho - $8.80
Capture the essence of Vietnamese dining with their delicious appetiser. We had the best platter with everything combined, prawn cake, summer roll and fried spring roll. Everything is fine but the standard of summer roll was abit lacking, the wrap was somehow too thick and the common peanut sauce that we are used to was not served.

Khai Vi Tong Ho'p - $10.80
 Here we have something not noodles! The grilled lemon chicken set came with rice and will be a wiser choice if you want something filling. Set includes a sunny side up egg and delicious strips of chicken covered in good scent of lemongrass.

I spotted something new to me on their menu and decided to try out this ginger beverage that contain roasted peanuts. It tasted like plum drink to me added with some crunch.


Overall though I find they are doing not bad, I still prefer Pho Hoa's Pho. However in terms of distance to where I'm residing and convenience, they are still one of the better choice to enjoy a decent Vietnamese Cuisine.
