Pho Hoa was said to be a combination of two words. Pho meaning soup and Hoa which mean harmony. From a tiny Vietnamese restaurant in San Jose, California, this restaurant has reach the Philippine islands and has been serving healthy food for health conscious individuals ever since.
Their branch at Eton Centris is a nice place to have a quiet lunch after a busy day at the office. Since my friend Pau won a bet he invited me and Jaypee for a lunch out at this place.
I have always like the noodle soup served at Pho Hoa in Tomas Morato but I am willing to try out other dishes that they served aside from this much highly lauded dish.
It was nice to sip Green Mango shake while waiting for our orders to arrived. I was curious about the Watermelon shake but was thinking that I need something to fight off those calories from the fried chicken and crab rice that we will be serve with later on.
Pho Hoa's function room was cozy and epitomize Vietnamese chic.
First to arrive was this dish that has some spring rolls and beef served with it. Pau said this was his favorite dish whenever he eats at Pho Hoa Centris.
Jaypee ordered the same dish that I was curious to try out. We agreed to share Crab Rice which can serve two to three persons. Pau was taken in by our delight in eating something crunchy. What made this dish taste better was the sauce that we dipped it with.
Personally speaking, next time I would love to eat a plate of this Caramelized Chicken Drumettes next time. The extra vegetables served with the dish was enough to balance the high calorie content of this fried meal. I love the Crab rice too. It was tastier than the fried rice that was served with Pau's dish.
