Restaurant Review: Pho Hoa

I remember being so scared in trying out new restaurants. I used to only know three cuisines: Filipino, Chinese and Italian. Yes, there was a time that I dreaded even Japanese food.

As I decided to go out of my comfort zone in food tripping, Pho Hoa was one of the first restaurants I’ve tried. Having a branch at Paseo Center, Pho Hoa has become my quick fix every time flu strikes.

I visited Pho Hoa once again last month. I couldn’t find the time to squeeze in this post because of my PC crashing, getting sick and all of the other things I have been juggling.

I chose Caramelized Chicken Drumettes as starter. I didn’t hesitate to eat it by hand; it is a finger food after all. I liked the sweet and salty combination of the sauce on the side that I didn’t notice the sauce starting to drip from my lips.

Caramelized Chicken Drumettes Php158.50

Boyet had their Grilled Pork Chops. I tried this before and there was really nothing unusual with it. Except that the meat was really tender and the sweet vinegar was a nice combination.

Grilled Pork Chops Php238.50

I got their Marinated Prawns and Pork. I liked it but I didn’t fall head over heels with it. Again, the sweet vinegar made a lot of difference.

Marinated Prawns and Pork Php275

I have to admit that I go to Pho Hoa for their noodles rather than their rice meals. They offer big servings and I loved the idea of putting coriander, bean sprouts and lemon in your soup. Their salads are great too. I personally like their Pomelo Shrimp Salad. ^_^
