Phở Lệ

That phở place recommended by our local Uber driver which is quite popular among the locals. It's located at HCMC's busy Chinatown. Be prepared that the place is not very clean, food waste is somehow just everywhere on the floor.

(possibly with flank too since I told her I wanted everything!)

Phở with Beef Balls and Beef Slices

That very usual sight in phở shops, it is by default that they all serve with a plate of raw sprouts, basil, mint, lime and chilli. Warning - Vietnamese chilli is extra spicy, don't try to put more than one if you can't take spicy food. As for the leaves, it's good to put a bit of everything for better flavours. Adding fish sauce into our bowl of phở instantly made it so flavourful!! 

It can be so difficult to order when we can't speak Vietnamese. Thankfully, there are many Viets who can speak Mandarin or Cantonese. Always try your luck, you'll never know! The lady at the stove/counter, speaks Cantonese and she took our orders with no problems at all. Overall, perfect! Besides hygiene issues and being served way too tiny coconuts, we enjoyed everything else.
