There are plenty of restaurants that have dozens of dishes on their menu, but Pho Hung Vuong in Springvale know what they do and do it well. The Pho here comes in massive servings and has been the go-to Pho spot for years for Vietnamese locals.
The humble restaurant is as no-frills as it gets. The outdated decor with the double mirrors on the restaurant walls brings a certain charm to the joint.
From the restaurant’s concise menu, you can choose between beef or chicken as your protein of choice, and what other trimmings you want in your noodle soup—rare beef, rib, tendon, tripe, beef balls, and so on. Next, dress your bowl of Pho with fresh bean shoots, chilli, Thai basil, lemon, chilli oil, hoisin sauce or sriracha.
Make sure to partner it with an cold Vietnamese iced coffee, or pour yourself a hot cup of jasmine tea and you’re in business!
Definitely get in early to score a table before queues starting forming outside the shop at lunch time!
