Pho Saigon - Flemington

We've been trying to widen our pho-eating circle, trying to eat at different pho places instead of the ones we've tried and tested to be good. A new venture for us was at Pho Saigon in Flemington. Just before stepping into the restaurant, we bumped into a group of our friends who were just on their way out. They told us that they had a pretty satisfying lunch and particularly recommended the crispy skin chicken. Unfortunately, as we were creatures of habit, the normal pho was ordered, with an entree of spring rolls.

The spring rolls here had a relatively thicker pastry wrap. The filling was also less awesome tasting consisting mainly of finely mushed pork mince. The redeeming factor, however, was that it was crazily crunchy and deep-fried a perfect golden brown.

Hubby ordered his special beef noodle soup. There were plenty of slices of raw beef, beef tripe, beef tendon and beef balls.There was also plenty of onions to make the soup yummy and sweet. My pho was likewise rather yum. Loads of beef balls and silky smooth noodles and yummy soup. Mmm... I was starving and hence, smashed this.

It wasn't a bad meal overall. The pho here is quite yummy but... probably our usual hood in Flemington is preferred.
