I met a friend of mine here for lunch one afternoon. He had never been here before, but I have. My friend enjoyed several appetizers for his lunch. The chicken wings they serve here look absolutely awesome. I had some shrimp spring rolls, you know, the kind that you can see through the wrapping. They were served with that delicious peanut butter sauce, that sauce was all gone by the time I was done. I also enjoyed a brisket pho(soup, for you newbies). Of course I poured all of the side vegetables that they bring to the table. The soup is so hot, that it cooks the vegetables while it's sitting in the broth. I had a lovely time with my friend Jonathan. We both cleaned our plates. Pho88 is worth a return visit.
Bun Rieu is probably one of my favorite Vietnamese dishes if I'm not in the mood for Pho. Sadly, not a lot of restaurants make it since it's such a special dish. I was glad to see it on the menu here so I had to order it! It was delicious and tasted just how a Bun Rieu should taste - plump vermicelli noodles with a nice hot crab and tomato broth with pieces of crab cake and fried tofu. I always add the basil and the jalapenos in too! So glad they had this on the menu! (I also recommend the bun bo hue if you like spicy noodles). I also ordered the summer rolls (the fresh spring rolls (Goi cuon) with shrimp) and it was really disappointing so I would skip out on that. My friends had the chicken pho and the bun bo hue and they loved their dishes. They also ordered a vietnamese coffee with the condensed milk and an iced tea and they both enjoyed that as well. Overall, the restaurant is fairly big, clean, and spacious and the service was good. Food was good and there is plenty of parking! Oh also, they accept Credit cards!
Having number 36. Well done brisket pho. It's amazing. I met some family from out of town. My family has a baby. The servers and staff were super helpful in getting the little one accommodated. Everyone has been friendly and since I have never eaten anything like this I had a bunch of questions. I also have allergies so I had to make sure everything would be cool for me. The staff was really patient. I def recommend it.
