Tired of wonton soup, egg drop soup or hot and sour soup? Well, Asian Café has added a new soup. Many of you may have tried it some time ago at truly authentic Vietnamese restaurants. But according to my taste buds, Asian Café has as authentic Beef Pho that I ever had. The beef broth is so savory and delicious. No beef cube here. The rice noodles are traditional, thin flat noodles with chewy texture sort of like "Al Dente." The meal included a nice amount of fresh bean sprouts, fresh Thai basil, a couple of pieces of jalapeno and 2 pieces of sliced lime. The meat included flank steak , some beef tendons, beef balls. The meat is included in the both, just add the bean sprout, add the Thai basil leaves and jalapeno peppers and squeeze the fresh lime slices in the broth. Then you can also add some hoisin sauce giving a little sweetness and/or Sriracha hot sauce.
It's so delicious on a cold day with a unique beef broth. Just delicious.
I highly recommend going to Asian Café and while your there you'll have to try the curry. Light, spicy yet delicious over white rice.
My rating on a scale of 1 to 5, I give a 5.
You'll be glad you went there!
