Dine In: Pho Hoa

It’s been three weeks since I’ve been discharged from the hospital, and aside from the visits to the doctor for follow-up checkups and the day I braved going to Makati alone to take care of some matters at the BPI branch across my (soon-to-be-former) workplace, I’ve been either in our house in Valenzuela or in the condo in Pasay most of the time.

Which is why when my mom had to attend a birthday celebration, she tagged me along so that I can experience being really outside again. After dropping her at a house in New Manila, our driver Kuya Diony and I went to the nearby Robinson’s Magnolia to pass the time. While there, I messaged Johann and Ed to join us for dinner.

We headed to Pho Hoa, a classic Vietnamese restaurant, because I’ve been craving for pho since my sister went to Vietnam last week and had been posting pictures of Vietnamese food on Facebook. Plus, pho, especially the simpler versions are generally low-fat. They’re also easy on the stomach, which is great as I’m still on a soft diet.

Pho Khong Thit / Pho Noodle Soup without Meat (Small: PHP 170)
Goi Cuon / Fresh Spring Rolls with Shrimp and Pork (PHP 155)
Chien Dau Hu / Breaded Tofu with Minced Mushroom and Veggie Sauce (PHP 285)

Johann also ordered the Goi Cuon (fresh spring rolls) and Chien Dau Hu (breaded tofu in veggie sauce), which unfortunately I didn’t get to try one bite. My belly was feeling bloated, probably due to indigestion. But I did try these a couple of times before. Pho Hoa has been a go-to destination whenever cravings for Vietnamese dishes come about.

I didn’t get to finish my bowl of pho as well, but on the bright side, I had it bagged to go, which left me with a bowl of goodness (albeit not as freshly cooked) the morning after.
