Pho Me

Maybe it was a bad omen that it took us three attempts to eat at Pho Me.  The first was a Monday, and we discovered the restaurant is closed on that particular day.  We arrived a few minutes after closing time on our second attempt.  Our most recent visit, on a “chilly” north Florida evening, resulted in us getting in the door, but leaving unsatisfied.

The restaurant offers steaming bowls of noodle soups, noodle/rice salads, bahn mi (sandwiches), and various sides.  The restaurant was empty, and we took our time to look over the entire menu.  Pho (pronounced fuh) is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, noodles, herbs and meat. Great pho in Tallahassee has been elusive, and we both hoped Pho Me would fill this void.   I ordered a bowl of pho with rare sliced beef while Kirsten opted for the pho with chicken.

We took a seat at a small table.  Several bottles of sauces, including Sriracha and hoisin, sat on the tables.  While we waited for our pho, a plate of condiments was slid onto the table.  Fresh basil, sliced jalapenos, bean sprouts, and lime wedges filled the small dish.

One thought on “Pho Me

  1. I agree. Worst Pho ever at this place!!!. The restaurant Pho7 on Pensacola (across from McDonalds) is the closest in taste and quantity of meat to the Pho I enjoyed while living in Asia
