Reliving Vietnam at Pho Hoa

One rainy August night, CS and I joined a group of tourists from Vietnam for a delicious and savory dinner at Pho Hoa. Before my first trip to Ho Chi Minh back in 2010, I never really paid much attention to Vietnamese cuisine. My initial impression was that Chinese and Vietnamese cuisine only revolves around noodles and nothing more. Though I was able to try authentic street food in Saigon, it was my trip in Hanoi in 2013 that changed my perspective about Vietnamese food.

What we ordered

Fresh Spring Rolls - Php145.00

A refreshing appetizer enough to fill some space in my hungry tummy and leave some for the main entree, these Fresh Spring Rolls dipped in peanut sauce is a must order in Pho Hoa.

Grilled Chicken, Veggie and Fried Rolls Vermicelli - Php290.00 (Small) Php340.00 (Large)

Great minds think alike.

CS and I both ordered Rice Vermicelli dishes -- he had the Grilled Chicken, Veggie and Fried Rolls Vermicelli while I ordered the Prawn, Veggie and Grilled Pork Chop Vermicelli. Apart from the huge serving, what really surprised us is instead of having more Vermicelli like most restaurants do, both our bowls had more vegetables (about 2/3) that it felt like we're actually eating salad!
