Lunch at Pho Hoa Noodle Soup

I’ve been sharing about Vietnam these past few weeks and it reminded me that we dined at Pho Hoa Noodle Soup last month. I was checking my old post and it’s been six years na pala since we last dined at Pho Hoa. Well, my first experience was not good so it took me a long to revisit, you can read my old post below.

Pero dahil kagagaling ko lang sa Dentist and kakakabit lang ng braces ko, I just want to eat noodles. My husband suggested Pho Hoa because he loves Vietnamese Cuisine kasi and favorite din niya ang Pho. We ordered Pho Chin Nam (Brisket Pho) P295 and Com Tom Thit Nuong (Marinated Prawns with Grilled Pork on Rice P355.

Just to give you an idea Pho is the world’s famous Vietnamese noodle soup. It consists of broth, rice noodles, herbs and your choice of meat. At Pho Hoa, there are different Pho-Noodle Soup in their menu; you can choose from Beginners, Adventurer’s Choice, Just Regular and Fortifying Combos.I only chose the Beginners.

They serve the bowl of noodle soup with a plate of vegetables and a wedge of lemon. There are also condiments on your table so it is up to you how you want to add flavor on your soup. But I prefer to eat it without herbs and vegetables. And because I was in pain because of my braces, my husband finished my order. He added the condiments and ate the vegetables.

My husband ordered Com Tom Thit Nuong, I was not able to try his meal because I can’t chew. But he finished everything so I'm pretty sure hindi na lasang sunog ang pork. I hope on my next visit to Pho Hoa, maappreciate ko na yung order ko. Hehehe!

My husband always tells me that he likes the food in Pho Hoa but he was not able to convince me to try this Vietnamese Noodle House. Last Mother’s Day I was lazy to cook for our lunch so I just told my husband that we will just eat outside which was not a good idea because when we reached Festival Mall. All fastfoods and restaurants were full and we really had a hard time looking for a restaurant.

I took this photo yesterday

We’re not choosy at that time and we’re just looking for an available table and luckily we got a table in Pho Hoa, past 1:30PM. My husband ordered Grilled Pork and Fried Spring Rolls with Rice, a large bowl of noodles and a dessert. I don’t know the name except for my meal. 

While eating our meal...

Hubby: Sarap noh? Favorite ko yan and yan lagi ko order.
Me: Hindi kaya, lasang sunog.

Since I was not able to finish my meal, my husband ate my leftover and he said “Sunog nga”. 


  1. favorite ko din dyan especially the salad and the fried spring rolls... masarap din ang pho nila malaki serving... and best of all yung jumbo iced tea. :D

  2. bidang-bida nga niya sa kin pho hoa tapos di ok ang first try ko. sa dami siguro ng tao, nalimutan ang food ko kaya nasunog. =)

  3. Hehehe! Haven't tried Pho Hoa yet. Vietnemese cuisine isn't really appealing to me din kasi. Maybe I'm just not too exposed to it yet. =)
