After ordering the summer rolls for appetizer, my desire for the main course was brisket and meatballs. I was curious to try something different. In the past, I usually order the seafood pho consisting of shrimp, squid, scallops, mussels, fish cake, and the rest of the ocean critters.
This time I had a different desire. The Brisket and Meatball intrigued me. I ordered a large portion and I was surprised on how large the dish was. I could not finish the dish even though my love calls me an endless pit!
The Pho was soft, chewy and had a off white color to the noodles. The meatballs were tender on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside. As for the Brisket, it was perfectly cooked in my boiling pho dish. There was something missing…. I reached over for the home made chilli paste and dispersed the concentration in my bowl. Alas…content in my pleasurable pursuit for a Pho afternoon dish.
