Pho King - Oakland - Quick Report

Dave MP | Apr 21, 201508:44 AM

I ate at Pho King for the second time this weekend. The place was full at 1 PM on Sunday, but it wasn't a very long wait.

We shared Chao Tom Cuon (sugarcane shrimp rolls), Pho (not pictured), and Mi Quang.

Everything was good, and I particularly liked the broth of the pho. This was my first time trying the dish mi quang, and while I liked it, I wasn't totally wowed by it. I think this version sort of lacked flavor, and it might have benefitted from extra fish sauce or something else to augment the flavors of the various ingredients. My DC, who is much more familiar with the dish, agreed that he's had better versions elsewhere.

That said, we both liked this place, and I'd definitely return for pho or to try other items (lots of tables had bun bo hue).
