Pho Ga (Rice noodle soup with chicken) (A$10.00)

If you’re not used to the Western portion, it’s really big as compared to what you get in Malaysia or Singapore. Its smooth rice noodle with chicken breast meat topped with onions, spring onions and shallot swimming in tasty soup. I love the soup which gives a happy tingle to your mouth. Definitely a “want-more” if your stomach could have more.

They serve numerous types of pho, Vietnamese rice noodle with beef or chicken, soup or dry, and other side dishes. Pho bo (Rice noodle with beef) would be the most authentic of pho. If you take beef, you should try that. “Special” would mean other than meat, it also comes with some other parts of the cow or pig.

It have a vast varieties that will spoilt you for choices. It did to me! However, as there’s only 2 of us. We had a taste for something soupy.

Veggie Bak Kut Teh (RM17.90)

This is always our top choice. It is also their recommended meal. It is a bowl of herbal soup with mushrooms, bean curd slices, vegetarian meat and lettuce. Supplement with a bowl of brown rice. It’s always an appetizing dish for me.

Assam Laksa (RM13.90)

Also a recommended dish by the restaurant. This is my first time having vegetarian Assam laksa. A spicy soury soup with vegetarian fish, and rice noodles topped with pineapple and cucumber stripes, chili and mint leaves. I love the how the soup taste thick like the non-vegetarian Assam laksa. I would love it more if it’s more sour because my tolerance level towards sour is quite high. Still, it’s appetizing! Yum!
