I have been watching with interest while the former Best Bowl space was being converted into something. Well, although the big sign above the place still says Best Bowl, today there is an open restaurant called Phoreign in the space - fusion-y looking Vietnamese. I picked up one of the menus left outside and it is small - about 15 dishes. But since the dishes are numbered and the numbers go up to 48, I am guessing that what I have is just a teaser menu.
Anyway, there are standard appetizers like cha gio and goi cuon - imperial rolls and spring rolls, with a vegetarian version of each, as well. There is also a section for bun and one for pho. I wonder if the pho chay is really vegetarian? Unlikely, but y'never know.
So, who is going to brave the dreaded Westside pho curse and be our guinea pig here?
Phoreign is in the same shopping center on Sawtelle as Blue Marlin, Restaurant 2117 and Hurry Curry.
