For me Pho is all about the broth, if it’s good the rest normally falls into place. I’ve not had a good Pho in awhile so I decide to check out the So Pho chain. The menu has most of the common Vietnamese dishes. I order the combo Pho with sliced beef, brisket and balls and also a Vietnamese drip coffee. The Pho arrives in no time along with the bean sprouts, chilli and lime. I add these to the bowl and then as with all Pho’s I eat I take the spoon/ladle and take a sip of the soup. And as expected it’s mediocre, it doesn’t have the Pho taste and is too salty. I say expected as I’ve come to terms that it’s going to be awhile till I find a good Pho. Overall the noodles, beef balls, brisket and sliced beef were also OK. As for portion size it’s average but I must say there was a generous amount of slice beef. The Vietnamese coffee was good. I’m going to give the taste a two due to the saltiness of the soup. For service I’ll give a four as the staff were attentive and smiling. If anyone has recommendations for Pho please let me know. continue reading

Do Visit http://www.umakemehungry.com/2014/06/so-pho.htmlVietnamese Cuisine is very common nowadays and easily spotted in the malls and I had noticed they are getting popular. So Pho is located in the basement of JEM with a spacious dining area. It's concept of dining was straight forward and open where anyone who passes by their restaurant can actually have a full overview of it.Before we could actually grab our meals, So Pho recommended that its ok to chew noisly with our mouth wide open to have a UN-PHO-GETTABLE experience in So Pho.Personally, I had gradually enjoyed Vietnamese Cuisine after my trip to vietnam many years back and often my meals cant go without a big bowl of their Staple Pho and Summer Rolls. Thus, without much flipping of the menu, I already knew what will be my dishes.Their Vietnam imported Chilli sauce is readily available on every table.Pho Dac Biet is classified under one of their chef's recommendation which inclide Slice Beef, Brisket and Beef Balls with Vietnamese Pho in the fragrant soup. Having tasted their competitors Pho, I would say theirs are one of the better ones I had where the soup was light and tasty, not really loaded with MSG. The beef balls comes in a pair and perhaps a coincidence that I had them "glued" together. It tasted abit mushy for me and I prefer something that requires a little more force to bit on.While the brisket and sliced beef are heavenly soaked in the delightful and nutritious broth with big cut of onions and garnish. For those who want to skip the beef version may order the chicken Pho, the taste of broth has a slight difference. And one can actually request garnish to be separated from the noodle dish.Capture the essence of Vietnamese dining with their delicious appetiser. We had the best platter with everything combined, prawn cake, summer roll and fried spring roll. Everything is fine but the standard of summer roll was abit lacking, the wrap was somehow too thick and the common peanut sauce that we are used to was not served.Here we have something not noodles! The grilled lemon chicken set came with rice and will be a wiser choice if you want something filling. Set includes a sunny side up egg and delicious strips of chicken covered in good scent of lemongrass.I spotted something new to me on their menu and decided to try out this ginger beverage that contain roasted peanuts. It tasted like plum drink to me added with some crunch.Overall though I find they are doing not bad, I still prefer Pho Hoa's Pho. However in terms of distance to where I'm residing and convenience, they are still one of the better choice to enjoy a decent Vietnamese Cuisine. continue reading

If you are staying in the West and love Vietnamese food, you can rejoice because So Pho, a humble-looking eatery serving Vietnamese food is located conveniently at the basement of JEM which is just beside Jurong East Mrt Station. It is not common to see Vietnamese eateries around so I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try out So Pho.Banh Xeo $9.80vietnamese pancake with minced meat and seafoodI really love the Banh Xeo that I had eaten at the World Street Food Congress but So Pho's version paled in comparison. The edges were crisp and the pancake was filled with minced meat, shrimps and beansprouts. However, the batter was not as fragrant as the one I tried and it lacked that something which I can't put a word to. It was quite a disappointment.Curry Chicken Set $9.90The curry chicken set comes with a bowl of curry chicken, rice and a sunny-side up. The curry chicken was not spicy. I would honestly prefer my chinese curry to this. The chicken meat had a consistency of slight redness and one could also tell there was discolouration around the joints. It was quite unsightly and it did not make us want to have more of it. The sunny side up was perfectly displayed. When I poked my fork into the yolk, it burst beautifully. The salad at the side was nothing worth mentioning.Pho Ga $8.80It comes with some raw beansprouts served separately which added a crunchy texture to the bowl of noodles. I got the chicken noodle soup instead of the beef because I do not like the heavy taste of cooked beef. The soup broth was sweet and delightfully tasty. It was clear and not oily too. There were plenty of chicken meat in it too. The amount of rice noodles in it was just right, not too much nor little. This is worth a try!Rice paper rolls wrapped with prawns and lemongrass chicken $4.50As much as I would love to, I could not appreciate the taste of it. It was really dry and bland and hard to take a second bite because the taste was not enticing at all. I've come to a conclusion that my tastebuds are not a fan of vietnamese food, except the delicious but really oily Banh Xeo I had some time ago. If you do not like Vietnamese food, you can give this a miss. For full review and more photos, please visit http://rachelays.blogspot.com continue reading

I was hesitant to order a cup of coffee during dinner time as I was afraid the caffeine would affect my sleep. Nevertheless, I still ordered it as I couldn't resist Vietnamese drip coffee! My bowl of sliced beef noodles at $8.80 is really worth it! The bowl is huge, containing a lot of beef slices and a really generous serving of rice noodles. The Pho is good and overall, my meal here is very satisfying! My friend had quite a disappointing experience though, wrong choice of food item! She ordered the Grilled Chicken Baguette which was quite hard and she didn't like the filling inside.The ambience of this restaurant is very relaxing and I love the decor of the place. The service here is good as well and I will definitely be back to try their other food items! continue reading

Quite a few of my friends who has been to the new shopping mall JEM at Jurong was telling me it's a nice place with good range of shops and restaurants for both shopping and makan. But it's about 40 minutes train ride for me so i hesitated a bit. It's only recently i finally planned a visit cause i had to collect something at JEM.I like the place and after exploring around a bit, i decided to settled my dinner at So Pho! Since it's my first visit, i tried the Vietnamese Pho which consisted of sliced beef, brisket & beef meatballs noodle soup. It's actually quite nice! Only the brisket was slightly tough and overall was a good one. Broth was sweet and beef meatballs were very tender too! For $9+, i think it's reasonable for the quality and portion. Will be back again if im at JEM. Good service too =) continue reading
