Pho Ha’s Greatest Fans

So when I say I have a pho problem, I mean it. I mean it’s not a problem like crack is a problem or meth is a problem, but seriously, I need it all the time. And it’s usually a toss-up between Pho Ha or Pho & Cafe Viet Huong. Pho Ha won this time out. The summer rolls, one of our staples. They’re usually always fresh here, with the wrappers being nice and sticky and pliable, so you know they just made em.
We’ve been here a bunch of times before where we’ve seen people order the pork and shrimp vermicelli bowls. J had to have one this time. It was a bit disappointing when he got a whole 2 shrimp in his bowl. 2. We knew there was something wrong with that, because when we’d seen other people getting it in the past, they always had at least 5 or 6. He was disappointed. And it looked like they’d tried to make it up to him by giving him extra pork instead. The pork is damn good, but he ordered pork and shrimp, not mostly pork and 2 shrimp. Unfortunately, J is pretty non-confrontational, so he didn’t say anything. The 2 sad little shrimp he did get, they were very good.
I was in the mood for chicken, but not the broken rice plate, so I went with the grilled chicken vermicelli bowl with an added spring roll. Their chicken was awesome, as always. And I’m a big fan of the spring rolls here. They’re super meaty and flavorful and crispity fresh. Perfunctory service as usual. Nothing really to complain about other than the lack of shrimpage.
