I eat a lot of pho and vermicelli bowls in many cities and at many restaurants. I have standards now and now longer just happily slurp the soup of any pho or appreciate the colours of a vermicelli bowl.
My favourite place to eat so far is Co Du Hue (post coming soon). I like the broth of their bon bu hue I like their toppings for their vermicelli bowls. Their service is fast their food is good the only bad thing is IT IS SO FAR AWAY. NORTH SIDE
So on Sunday my family asked if I wanted to join them for lunch. OF COURSE.. free meals are the staple for a struggling student trying to make it in life.
We tried one other pho place near Moksha yoga ALAS it was closed. Defeated and hungry at 1:30 pm we went to Pagolac House (my brother suggested it) This was great because we had been talking about taxes and doing our taxes and looking at all our documents. I WAS FRAZZLED and in need of food ASAP
Won Jung Gak) . To me it looks a bit shady and dirty looking but that is usually where you find gems.
Well would I go back? It is quite near where I live, the stuff wasn't horrible at all in comparison to other pho places. It is not Co Du Hue but its doable. I saw other people eating different stuff as I was walking out (some sort of hot pot set up?) maybe if I try that kind of stuff I will be more GUNG HO?
