We seem to arrive with another 50 people keen on warming up that night, could it have anything to do with a certain review the day before?
We line up expecting a wait and in front of us, couple after couple are leaving after being told that no booking means no table. We persist, optimistic, that perhaps we won't have to wait too long. It gets to our turn and the waitress is called to the kitchen before we can mutter the answer to her question "no, we don't have a booking", she tells us to wait just a moment and walks away.
In the meantime, a table for two is leaving and another waitress comes along and tells us to be seated. I refuse to decline and we take a seat. Dumb luck or foodie fate? I'll let you decide.
We peruse the menu and after a bit of the time, our order is taken. The waitress apologises for the delay and assures us that in a few weeks the waiting times won't be so long.
We start with some entrees, before our much needed pho.
|Crispy squid stuffed with prawn, pork mince and black fungus|
|Crispy pancake stuffed with bean sprouts, mung beans & duck|
|Pho bo with wagyu beef|
This gorgeous Vietnamese restaurant is most definitely worth a try for that warm bowl of pho alone.
