Spring Rolls! I can honestly say that my wife and I are hooked on these. I ordered one of each today with the exception of the tofu rolls because Tofu and I don't get along. I found all of them to be balanced and flavorful especially the pork which is by far our favorite. For the second time, I decided to order the lunch special of Co'm Bo Xao which is Beef stir fried with onions and carrots and it did not disappoint. Service has always been pleasant and timely. I look forward to trying the Pho on my next visit.
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.
I haven't eaten anywhere recently that I was terribly excited about. Until work took me to Florida - boom! Good gracious, can we say, 4 to 5 star reviewed mom-and-pop paradise!? Of course I would land in sunny Florida, but still with the chill of Cincinnati in my bones. I wanted to hunt down a bowl of phó for dinner. A search on my trusty Yelp app turned up so many options, however, I really wanted to try Phó 88. Mind you, I have no sense of direction, no memory for giving directions, so all I can say is my GPS took me through a winding, cramped row of buildings, with not a national chain restaurant in sight. All of the signs were in Vietnamese, and I was quite excited about what I would find. A good thing about the restaurant as well, is that there was plenty of free parking in the back. And I was thrilled by the interior - it was so big, airy, clean and well lit. I even checked out the restroom, and it was spotless as well. I ordered a bowl of the phó tai and was promptly served a huge bowl of deliciousness loaded with as many noodles as my little heart would've desired, with plenty of tender, thinly sliced beef, and hearty garnishes. Everything was fresh, delicious - hot soup and crisp, cool garnishes, yum. The service was very fast and friendly, my food was so cheap (only $8), that I had unwittingly failed to spend the $10 minimum for credit card charges. The staff was very friendly and quick to understand, and there was not an issue at all. I will definitely be back here for a victory lap.
