pho han

Small, husband and wife run, pho restaurant in the little plaza where big names like Manzo and Prata-man are. Clean and simple interior with an open kitchen, seating no more than 20 people, it serves pho cheaper than most other joints around.

Bún Bò Huếbeef, pork blood, Vietnamese ham & pork hock with vermicelli in spicy soup

I had to add in quail egg. The portion size for Pho Han is more on the smaller size, so if you’re used to filling up on the medium sizes in regular Vietnamese restaurants, for for the large here. They don’t use the thick vermicelli for their Bún Bò Huế, but then again I normally change it anyways. The soup is very light in flavour, and the spiciness of their chili oil was not present despite the colour. Was disappointed that they don’t offer the red chilies here.

Phở Bò Đặc Biệthouse special beef noodle soup – rare sliced sirloin beef, beef flank, brisket, tendon, meatballs & tripe

Fatboy got the house special with spicy soup, and like mine, the soup was bland and not spicy.

Given the price, it’s fair to say that you get what you pay for. I wouldn’t necessairly come back, as there are much better pho places around such as An Nam. However, it’s not that bad to the point that I won’t visit it if I am around due to convenience sake, or if I’m really craving for pho on a tight budget.
