Tried Hoi An in the weekends as well. Have to admit it was pretty good. Had the Bun Bo Hue and loved the soup since it wasn't overly fatty/oily, ingredients were fresh too.

One question, in the plate of bean sprouts, lime and basil, what were the other curly stuff? Don't think I've seen them in other pho places before.

I believe what you're referring to are banana blossoms. Hoi An is the only restaurant I know of which serves it.

Had lunch with my co-worker today. Small pho dac biet!


So good.

She then gave me a side of sliced pepper and told me to put it all in. I obliged. Holy hell was it awesome. Although a seed was stuck in my throat and I was coughing like I had sars.

Good times.

Next time you should bring your gf=)

Went with the gf last night for dinner.
Agreed that the service was great.
Tea was always filled and we were treated with smiles every time.

The food was good but nothing special. Definitely has the "home cooking" feel
The noodles however, felt powdery.

They used to be on E.22nd and Rupert (where E-Tea is now aka Larry Chu's hood.)

They were terrible.
