A new entry in town is this trendy Vietnamese food corner. I am a curious fan of Asian cuisine, so I figured I’d give Pho61 a try. The place is nicely decorated, with some subtle and some less subtle bamboo motives combining Vietnamese symbols with a modern interior.
Since the place is still new, I was very attentive to what it had to offer and I must say the overall impression was pretty nice. The restaurant has a trendy interior with refreshing details. The menu is very authentic, and it doesn’t spare you all the unpronounceable dish names – with the needed description in more accessible languages, of course. The restaurant does exactly that: bring traditional Vietnamese food with a modern touch.
Pho is actually a traditional noodle soup that can be found at every corner of the street everywhere in Vietnam. People eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner… you name it. Kinda like Italians eat pasta :). But Pho is not the only dish served here. Plenty of other kinds of traditional preparations will be served in original ways.
Personally, I love the delicious mixture of the herbs and raw vegetables, with very nicely prepared meat and noodles. Most of the dishes come in these big bowls – that really just add to the experience. I strongly recommend the Shirley Temple – a refreshing juice mixture of healthy ingredients and fruits.
