PhoNatic: First Impression
Jessica had seen the new spot while driving by, and wanted to try it since her current favorite spot for Vietnamese, Hai Ky, doesn’t have a location that’s on the way home from work.
I was impressed with the self-serve bar that offered all of the traditional Vietnamese fixins.
And everything we ordered was inexpensive, huge, delicious, and made with what tasted like high quality ingredients.
This soup was from the PhoNatic House Specials menu and was recommended by the very patient woman taking our order at the counter. I’m so glad I took her recommendation, especially on the egg noodles instead of switching to Vermicelli, just because I’m used to those.
I took half of my soup home and enjoyed it the next day for lunch. And here’s the atmosphere of PhoNatic. With its cheesy name, fast-casual chain restaurant atmosphere, and antiseptic look, I was not expecting to enjoy the dishes.
But everything we had was complex, delicious, and generously portioned. I can’t wait to go back!Tags: pho, PhoNatic, Vietnamese
