Stopped here last night to try out the newly opened Pho 29. They doubled their size from the former Viet Grille and it is bright and comfortable. The new bathroom is a huge improvement. The new owner was gracious and brought us a complimentary appetizer of fried chicken which was moist and crispy. Lots of sauces to add a bit of heat. We ordered crispy spring rolls (fried) which were fine, but not especially outstanding, next time I would try the summer rolls instead. We really enjoyed the grilled pork and spring roll on rice vermicelli and vegetables. Very fresh tasting with thai basil, cilantro, and the usual dressing of fish sauce and shredded carrots. Lastly, we had the crispy hen. This was a favorite from the original Viet Grille, and while it was a beautiful presentation, we agreed it was not as crispy as before. Also, the stuffing was a bit dry and lacking in flavor. Overall, this place is still charming and will definitely return to try a bowl of pho.
