Pho Hoa

Pho Hoa may sound familiar to you as they have shops across Asia, Canada and US. It's not the best place for pho, but it's not too bad if you're craving for it.

Steak & Flank Pho (RM19.50)

The bowl of pho arrived piping hot, but the beef was served cooked. The ones I had in Vietnam is so different... They normally serve it raw so the hot soup will slowly cook it so that it wouldn't be overcooked.

Brisket and Flank Pho (RM19.50)

I'm not sure if they have issues of not being able to serve it that way due to some authority issues, but clearly these beef were pre-cooked before serving. Me like to see red-ish in my beef and me no like it being overcooked!

The noodles are not really the traditional Viet noodles, where it's soft and lightly transparent. This one is just hard (obviously it isn't freshly made), either that or it's not cooked long enough for that level of softness.

The only thing that scored for the night was the broth. The broth was very flavourful and it arrived really hot which is how it should be for us to add the additional vegetables at the side.

Drip Coffee (RM7.95)

The drip coffee was a pure no. It wasn't served on traditional Vietnamese drip coffee set. It was just like another cup of instant coffee.

Honestly, I would not recommend anyone to go to this chain restaurant as the quality is really not there at all. Not sure about other branches, but the one at The Curve is a letdown.
