Bun Rieu is probably one of my favorite Vietnamese dishes if I'm not in the mood for Pho. Sadly, not a lot of restaurants make it since it's such a special dish. I was glad to see it on the menu here so I had to order it! It was delicious and tasted just how a Bun Rieu should taste - plump vermicelli noodles with a nice hot crab and tomato broth with pieces of crab cake and fried tofu. I always add the basil and the jalapenos in too! So glad they had this on the menu! (I also recommend the bun bo hue if you like spicy noodles). I also ordered the summer rolls (the fresh spring rolls (Goi cuon) with shrimp) and it was really disappointing so I would skip out on that. My friends had the chicken pho and the bun bo hue and they loved their dishes. They also ordered a vietnamese coffee with the condensed milk and an iced tea and they both enjoyed that as well. Overall, the restaurant is fairly big, clean, and spacious and the service was good. Food was good and there is plenty of parking! Oh also, they accept Credit cards!
I haven't eaten anywhere recently that I was terribly excited about. Until work took me to Florida - boom! Good gracious, can we say, 4 to 5 star reviewed mom-and-pop paradise!? Of course I would land in sunny Florida, but still with the chill of Cincinnati in my bones. I wanted to hunt down a bowl of phó for dinner. A search on my trusty Yelp app turned up so many options, however, I really wanted to try Phó 88. Mind you, I have no sense of direction, no memory for giving directions, so all I can say is my GPS took me through a winding, cramped row of buildings, with not a national chain restaurant in sight. All of the signs were in Vietnamese, and I was quite excited about what I would find. A good thing about the restaurant as well, is that there was plenty of free parking in the back. And I was thrilled by the interior - it was so big, airy, clean and well lit. I even checked out the restroom, and it was spotless as well. I ordered a bowl of the phó tai and was promptly served a huge bowl of deliciousness loaded with as many noodles as my little heart would've desired, with plenty of tender, thinly sliced beef, and hearty garnishes. Everything was fresh, delicious - hot soup and crisp, cool garnishes, yum. The service was very fast and friendly, my food was so cheap (only $8), that I had unwittingly failed to spend the $10 minimum for credit card charges. The staff was very friendly and quick to understand, and there was not an issue at all. I will definitely be back here for a victory lap.
I went here for dinner with my husband and 13 year old daughter. We have had Vietnamese food before, so we knew what to expect. Soup is usually a safe bet for kids, so she loved the pho. She and I ordered smoothies with our meals- jackfruit and avocado. Both were sweet and delicious! We all enjoyed our meals and... More
