Pho (pronounced fuh) refers to Vietnamese national soup.
Hoa means harmony in Vietnamese.
Pho Hoa is essentially a family style restaurant that takes pride in their pho and affordable prices.Do you know that Pho Hoa is also the largest Vietnamese restaurant chain in North America but not Vietnam?
Thanks to Richard, we were given the opportunities to sample some Vietnamese favourite such as pho and spring rolls at Pho Hoa. The restaurant’s setting is simple; with murals illustrating the life of a typical Vietnamese and colourful lanterns hanging down the wall.
I love my Vietnamese Drip Coffee with Milk – RM5.95. The coffee is traditionally coarsely ground, then individually brewed with a small metal Vietnamese drip filter (cà phê phin), into a cup containing the condensed milk. The condensed milk and coffee are stirred together and poured over ice. It was a real treat, especially for those who enjoy their coffee strong and sweet.

The restaurant owner taught us a special method to savour the pho. First, sample the origanal flavour of the pho before adding the fresh coriander leaves, bean sprouts, hot chili padi, lemon wedges and basil leaves. Then, pour in some special sauce that Pho Hoa brought in from North America (the sweet sauce & spicy sauce). It will make the soup hot and fiery with extra intense flavour.
Cha Gio Re Kem – RM5.95
Net Spring Roll consisting Yam, Sweet Potato & Mung Bean with Vanilla Ice Cream
It was a very special sweet variation of the Vietnamese Spring Roll. The mashed yam and sweet potatoes were sweet and warm, together with the chilled ice cream, it was a delectable treat.
Cendol Kem – RM6.95
Cendol, Red Bean with Coconut Milk, Gula Melaka & imported Coconut Ice Cream
Pho Hoa is definitely the place to be for a delicious bowl of pho. The decent serving size proves to be a great value for money; a large bowl can easily feeds two person!
