If you have been reading this blog for any period of time or you read my tweets you know I’m a huge fan of Pho. Pho is Vietnamese beef noodle soup and over the past few years has become one of my favorite foods. This past weekend I was in Philly for theGXL and it was dinner time and being in a new place I decided to see if there were any Pho places. A few came up and the closest was Pho Thai Nam. I went there with my good friend Colin. The menu was quite large and they offered a lot of different items. The first thing I ordered was the deep fried spring rolls, which were very good.
Next was of course Pho. They have about 10 different choices, but I went with the rare beef with tripe, which is my usual at almost every Pho place I eat at. Many people think tripe is weird and I guess you can say that it is. I really does not taste like much and has a really weird texture, but for some odd reason I do enjoy it.
Our Pho came out very quickly and was nice and hot. Everything had a good taste to it and I was very impressed. The broth was very tasty and for me it did not need any of the sauces you normally get with Pho. If you are ever in the Philly area and want some good Pho you will not be disappointed with Pho Thai Nam. I wish we could have went back so I could have tried something else!
