While I am very keen in digging out more decent food in Western Australia (but I can't really do this too frequently due to currency gap), I've came across this Vietnamese restaurant which situated at Fremantle, WA. From the famous Fremantle Markets, walk towards DOME and to the famous San Churos restaurant, you should be able to see iPho's from San Churos. As mentioned, iPho' specializes in serving Vietnamese food and Vietnamese Beef Pho/Noodles is one of the most famous dishes among all Vietnamese dishes. Apart from the Pho/ Noodles, they do offer some other delicate entrees, salads, and some rice dishes as well. Price-wise, I'd say it was reasonable but the services provided to us were superb, they will eventually teach/guide you with the correct method of enjoying a bowl of Vietnamese Pho.
Up next was their Rare Beef Noodle Soup/ Pho Tai (Aud $13) which had some sliced Rare Beef topped on the noodles with thick and rich Beef Broth (with side condiments of Bean Sprouts, Basil, Chilies and Lemon). The soup was clear, but thick and flavorful to my liking, the best part was, it was not oily at all. The soup was brilliantly level up by adding some refreshing Basil leaves and Lemon juice, which made the soup so refreshing yet palatable. However, extra marks will be given if the soup can be served hotter and more beef slices added. Other wise, I'd say that this was a decent Beef Pho.
I had a cup of Yeo's Chrysanthemum Tea for Aud $3, other wise, every table will receive a bottle of icy cold plain water for free.

Only consolation...usually the portion there is really huge - at least, two can eat. Same in WA?ReplyDelete
aiyo, if u wanna live here, u mustn't convert the currencies la, else u will live until very stressful LOL, portion-wise, it depends on the restaurant itself, some offer bigger portions but some...just okay i guess...Delete
