Remember how psyched we were to hear about the new restaurant, Pho 14 located on Park Road just west of 14th Street?
Well, I was able to attend a soft opening for friends and family Sunday night and it was freaking phenomenal! Holy cow. All of the excitement and anticipation was worth it. It is so good. I had the Tai Gau (beef pho) which comes with onion, chives, cilantro and noodles. I’m not sure if you can tell from the photo but it comes in a nice big bowl and I was stuffed about half way through. There are 19 types of Pho that cost $8.95 for a large and $7.95 for a regular bowl.
I started out with a spring roll which was nice and fresh and comes with shrimp, pork, noodles, lettuce and a Hosin dipping sauce.
To top it off I had an iced coffee that was also really tasty.
The restaurant itself was quite comfortable with regular tables and chairs as well as a bar. So when will it be open to the public? The plan is this Thursday, March 19th but this is pending some final inspections. I will update as soon as it become final.
Full disclosure: since this was a practice opening for family and friends, I did not pay. This in no way influenced my description of how delicious everything was.
