Another Westside Pho your consideration

Jase Nov 29, 2009 09:40 PM

Didn't get a chance to try it but was zipping down Venice and spotted Super Pho and Teriyaki had just opened. This was in the old Ayala's spot that was then taken over by a short lived vegetarian place. Intersection of Greenfield and Venice, just west of Thai Boom and Tara's.

It'll be interesting to see if they are any good. Sorry I don't have an actual report of the food. Will try to stop by this week.

        Anyone tried it yet? This restaurant location seems to be cursed...

          I am sad to report the westside pho curse continues... I guess flavor doesn't cross La Brea... It looked beautiful!! The noodles were abundant and cooked well... The toppings fresh and they seemed so into the food (I also had the Eggrolls which were not like traditional Vietnamese ones... but they were very homemade)


          But the broth was SUCH a let down... *sigh* I swear, I'm starting to PRAY that the new Vietnamese place going into the Westfield Culver City offers some sort of reprieve to what we have to put up here... They got the Kyo Chon right, now it's time for the Pho!!!

              I was over at that Target and checked out the Kyochon. I have no idea what is going on but they had a lot of weird stuff on the menu. I hope they aren't going the way of Panda Express. Don't get your hopes up for Culver City Mall Pho.

              Pho west of the 323 is weak. The fact that a place wouldn't make egg rolls the proper way is a tell tale sign. At least their name wasn't a "bad pun" that makes no sense when the dish is pronounced properly (i.e. Pho Show, 9021 Pho etc.)

                I drove by this place today at around 5pm. A bunch of the tables were occupied. Anyone tried it lately?

            If by "lighter" you mean "flavorless," then you would be correct. I went there once. Not bad, but not at all compelling for a return visit (and I live ~10 min away). It tastes very light and fresh.... Which is not necessarily what I'm seeking out of a bowl of pho....
