More Pho Me: Pho Hoa Vietnamese Noodle House

It's rainy days like these when I miss living in Eastwood City. And when it is cold and I am craving for some piping hot pho (soup), there is one place we go to... Pho Hoa.

Price list: 
See Pho Hoa Munch Punch

What we like:
Their  Pho Nam, Chin, Gan, Bo Vien is a great pho choice. You can really taste and smell the cinnamon, cloves and star anise.
Pho Hoa large Flank, brisket, tendon and meatball pho for Php275
And the soup tastes loads better if you put in lots of these veggies (fresh bean sprouts) and herbs (basil and mint) plus sriracha!
Put it all in! C'mon don't be shy!
I put so much sriracha on my soup that it ends up becoming slightly red. Spicy hot to the point of me needing a hanky for my runny nose but so very worth it.
For appetizers we always get fresh spring rolls! Each piece gives your mouth that refreshing feeling but at the same time you also get a somewhat savory flavor when you the peanut sauce gets on your tongue. Each bite also has a crunch to it that awakens your taste buds.
Crappy camera phone shot because I was soooo eager to put these in mah mouth. #zeroEQ - Php 129
Other appetizer options? The pomelo shrimp and mango prawn salads are good but this time we tried the Viet chicken salad. Which unfortunately was a bit of a let down. Not that it tasted awful but I guess I was expecting something more.
Their meh chicken salad - Php 195
If you want some more rice noodles, then you can opt to order their vermicelli bowl. They are also YAMMY (as Coco Martin would put it), just go easy on the sauce.
Pho Hoa Fried Rice Paper Roll with Pork and Vermicelli - Php 260
The nice thing about Pho Hoa Eastwood is that it is connected to Jack's Loft so you can also order their famous fishbowl iced tea to go with your smorgasbord of Vietnamese food.

Insider Tips:
Low on budget? Just order the large pho plus a serving of the fresh spring rolls and that will already feed 2 pax!

Verdict:
A great alternative to Vietnamese pho if you do not have the resources to fly to Ho Chi Minh City to on a regular basis :)
