To add to this exercise regimen, I've also decided to put more fiber into my diet. And since I am not a big fan of salads (except perhaps, E's salad and the salads in Italianni's), I was incredibly thrilled when I discovered Pho Hoa's Vermicelli Bowl.
Vermicelli Bowl | Small: Php 280 | Large: Php320
The Vermicelli Bowl is filled with vermicelli noodles (of course), lettuce, sliced cucumber, shredded carrots, caramelized onions, fried garlic, crushed peanuts, atchara, and topped with your choice of prawns + grilled pork or fried rolls + grilled pork or grilled chicken + fried rolls. It comes with a light vinaigrette which I really like. Such a complete meal! Unlike those boring salads with heavy cream, there's a beautiful mix of flavors in this bowl.
Pho Hoa is a chain of vietnamese restaurants specializing in healthy and delicious noodle soups.
They serve this with your soup: fresh coriander leaves, bean sprouts,
hot chili peppers, lemon wedges and basil leaves.
Pho Bo Kho (Beef Stew) | Php155
Hot and spicy and flavorful. This explodes wonderfully in the mouth.
This is CBB's favorite and he always gives this satisfied look on his face after gorging this.
Caramelized Chicken Drumettes | Php165
We rarely really order anything else when we go to Pho Hoa. CBB just orders his noodles
while I order my usual vermicelli bowl. But one weekend, we ordered this chicken drumettes.
Crunchy with gentle hints of sweetness. Love this.
Pho Hoa also serves rice meals.
I loved that this restaurant is located in one of the less busy corners of Greenbelt 1.
It is almost always quiet there. The service is fast and friendly. The place is clean.
I can't wait to have another Vermicelli Bowl! This really is a must-try!
