Guam Dinner Bytes: Pho Noodle House
Pho Noodle HouseCuisine: Vietnamese
This little Vietnamese treasure located on the Ground Floor of the ITC Building next to the House of Brutus has been mentioned several times in this newsletter and I've written two complete reviews over the years.
Owned and operated by Sang Kim and his sibling sisters Phuong and Huong, who do most of the cooking, it's hard to go wrong with anything on the menu. Nonetheless, there are a number of suggested menu items, from Fried or Fresh Lumpia to Lemongrass Chicken (or Beef), Combination Noodles, Beef Salad, Fried Spareribs, and soups such as the one I'm featuring today.
Pho aka Vietnamese Beef Soup ($8), is best enjoyed when you prepare it in a particular fashion.
In using a Before and After photo juxtaposition, you can see the soup before and then the soup with all the blended ingredients, which includes fresh basil leaves, lemon, bean sprouts, Sriracha sauce, Hoisin sauce, and red chili pepper paste.
Once blended properly and proportionate to your taste preferences, this soup is awesome, and chockfull of be beef from meat balls and sliced beef to tripe.
