We stopped into a place called Tasty Pho after a 5k walk because I was cold from the 70 degree breeze. All I knew was I had Pho about a week ago and I needed more ASAP. Tasty Pho is a smaller restaurant with not much decor. It reminded me of a plain Jane sushi place that you'd stop into during lunch time. This wouldn't be a place to take a date, but it was perfect for us since we were dressed in workout clothes.
I ordered the Thai Iced coffee (New Englander at heart) and the Thai Pho, which is just broth, scallions and raw meat. They put a tray of limes, sweet basil and bean sprouts in front of us to add to our Pho. I ended up trying the wonton wrapped shrimp which was very simple, but had lots of flavor. Then we tried some type of Thai pancake thing (the thing in the bowls, in the picture) that I was NOT a fan of. Way too fishy flavored for me. Thank god the Thai Iced Coffee was sitting next to me because it helped kill the flavor. Mmmmm Thai Coffee. So sweet and delicious. I can feel the caffeine high as I write about it now.
Soon our server comes to the table with a bowl in his hands and two other servers behind him who were also holding bowls. When he got to the table he says "Who ordered the Pho"? I couldn't help but point out that he may want to be a little more specific since they have about 10 types of Pho on the menu and the name of the restaurant is literally called Tasty Pho. We had a little giggle about it and then moved on to eating out delicious Pho.
For those of you who have never had Pho before, I highly recommend it. However, keep in mind that this dish is typically HUGE and a regular size is about 3 times the size of a normal bowl of soup. I ended up having two days worth of left overs from this dish.
