philly foodspotting pho eatup – february 2012

Last night we spent a cold evening warming up with hearty bowls of pho from Pho Ha in South Philly. Pho Ha offers serveral different meat options for their rice noodle soup. I opted for #15, the pho with steak, flank, tendon, tripe, and fatty flank. The bowls of pho were huge, even for a small (pictured above). It was damn good! They had a generous serving of noodles and beef thrown into a flavorful broth. Check out some other photos from the eatup:

q.t. vietnamese sandwich

Last week, I returned to Q.T. Vietnamese Sandwich for the second time. The last time I was there, it was getting rather close to closing time and the staff apologized for not having their usual bread. I still thought it was pretty good. I came by for lunch this time, so they definitely had their usual bread.

I went with the #1, the House Special. This banh mi sandwich consists of Vietnamese ham & pork, pickled carrots and cucumber, jalapenos, cilantro, and mayo. It’s pretty tasty, leaves you full and isn’t too heavy on the stomach. The jalapenos gave it a nice kick, too.

Before I left, I had a quick chat with one of the women about the meat. She said that their #6, labeled as Pork, is actually pork belly. Ahh, pork belly! Why did they not write belly on the menu?! I’ve gotta come back for this one as well as the lemongrass tofu one, a popular recommendation from others.
