True to their word, my friends (and colleagues) took me out for a redemptive pho experience.
We headed slightly east of downtown to a local-to-DFW chain, Pho Que Huong. The restaurant felt like a family-owned joint, simple and basic.
We started with spring rolls. They were delicious! I would come back just to have these for lunch. Two sauces came on the side - a chile sauce and a peanut sauce. I tried them both then opted to dunk in sriracha. Yum.
I tried a beef pho again, but this time with no egg. This one looked vastly different than my bowl from Dalat. The broth was flavorful and even more so when I added some spice powder.
The pho came with a plate of add-ons - jalapeno slices, bean sprouts and basil. Add what you like. How perfect is that?
Verdict after Pho #2? I see why people like it. Prepared properly, it's tasty and satisfying. And not at all salty.
Pho Que Huong is on my must-go-to-again list!
