Pho '99, Greenville SC

Just wanted to give a quick report. After having to kill a couple hours on Monday down in Greenville, wanted to find a lunch spot and Pho '99 didn't disappoint. Knew it would be good when I was the only english speaking person in the restaurant. First let me say that I couldn't bring the whole family here with a limited selection, but what they do they do well. Ordered a vietnamese iced coffee with the sweetened condensed milk to start and it was outrageous! very strong coffee flavor without being overly sweet. Saved half as dessert. Started with the egg rolls, thought I ordered spring rolls but more on that later. The egg rolls were typical deep fried tiny non-descript rolls with a good slightly hot sauce.Not a great start. For a main course had the Broken rice ......? Pork, pork rink, fried egg, shrimp, it was very good, great pork grilled flavor.I added a little of the side sauces they provided on the side and great unique flavors in the dish. Then I ordered some take out for my wife and my dinner. Everyone in the placdeseemed to be ordering rice noodle soups and ordered that to bring home. It comes with sprouts, thai basil and other flavors to add to an already flavorful brouth. Delicious! We ordered seafood but seems their specialty is beef and we'll have to try that next. Did I mention the spring rolls were killer. Best I've ever had. Certainly a new favorite when we go to Greenville. C'mon Asheville where's our Vietnamese food?
