Happy Civic Holiday (aka Heritage Days), I like to think that we take this day to honour the Honda Civic.
episode post, Pho Anh Vietnamese Cuisine (150, 4211 – 10 Street). This location is very interesting, Pho Anh is sandwiched between a Chinese and a Thai restaurant, now everyone can get whatever they want for dinner…as long as everyone wants something Asian. The only problem with having 3 restaurants crammed together into this area is that Pho Anh, in the least, is an incredibly small restaurant. Also it was sweltering hot inside the restaurant too, with me eating spicy soup and being in the hot restaurant, I was quite sweaty by the end of the meal that the waitress embarrassingly brought it up.
Offered here is ‘Satay Beef Noodle Soup‘ for $8.95. The meal comes out very quickly and piping hot. The presentation is very basic, it’s standard pho broth with chili oil (with a little bit of something else) and it’s topped with green and white onions. The ‘something else’ I mentioned gives the soup a bit of a sour smell to it. The soup has an overall sour and salty flavour to it, very much like ‘Hot and Sour’ soup, and there is a quite a bit of spiciness to this soup. The noodles are really soft but they give a decent amount and deceivingly there’s more meat than what you first perceive. Overall, this is not that great of an effort for Satay Beef Noodle Soup.
