Long have I longed for Vietnamese in my WeHo neighborhood. I guess I will have to long a little longer for really good Vietnamese.
Absolutely Phobulous is so well located -- if only it was equally so good. I had the Triple Beef Pho and the Spring Rolls the other night.
The Pho broth was kind of acidic and oily, not as beefy, clean and aromatic as at better Pho joints. There were no beef balls -- one of the advertised "triple" of the dish -- so I gues it was really Double Beef Pho. The rare and cooked flank steak were in there and where good (enough).
The Spring rolls were a bit rubbery...no crunch..like thay had been rolled last spring.
It beats nothing (which is the only other choice for Vietnamese in the Melrose/WeHo/B. Hills mid-city area) but not by much.
