Pho Le Saigon Restaurant

Braving ourselves to try the pho place in Kota Damansara. Coming to KD is always a headache, so we got ourselves an Uber to avoid inconvenience.

Grilled Pork Rice Set (RM15.90)

The grilled pork was surprisingly well marinated. It looks plain but it was alright, at least it was quite flavourful, nicely grilled and rather tender. Served with couple of sides. The set also comes with a dessert.

Pho Combination (RM13.90)

I was not very impressive at the bowl of beef noodles, just by the looks of it. As I dug into the bowl, I was even more disappointed. The combination comes with mixed everything but proper beef meat. No beef slices at all... Beef balls were not served in full nor half. It sliced into quarter of a full meatball!!! The tendon was very tough, and you get a piece of everything else... Comparing to what I've had at Ara Viet - this bowl is rubbish, or at least I felt like I was having crap. Such wasted calories. We felt so thirsty even before reaching home, not sure what's their MSG game level too.

This place isn't too bad for a quick Viet fix; but really don't put high expectations. I didn't think it was worth travelling all the way to try. My ultimate goal is to find the best pho in Klang Valley, even if it's not the best, but at least close to what we had in Pho Le, Ho Chi Minh. I was hoping that they are somewhat related to them but no... Nothing is comparable.

Free dessert that came with the pork set.

This will be my first and last... Not superb enough for a second visit if I crave for pho.

Likes: Pork rice was okay
Dislikes: Pho not up to par, broth is not flavourful - just salty and full of MSG, ingredients are cheap ones and rationed portion too - don't expect to find beef slices in it. It's Klang Valley's price for a bowl of pho but quality/value isn't there so it makes the bowl of noodle expensive. It they had delivered the right amount then the price will be reasonable.
