Pho pastuer- Naugatuck new Pho
I just drove past some signs for a new Pho place on Rubber Ave in Naugatuck. Banner sign only and no hours or open date, but its in a former restaurant and a pretty spacious place. Hoping for good food coming to the valley and the possibility of not having to drive 30 minutes for a bowl of good Pho would be welcomed.
Finally opened this afternoon and I stopped in for a quick bite.
Some things to note.
Opening pangs are evident. The guy who cashed out my order wasn't up to speed on the credit card machine and I had to walk him through it's usage. I got my order to go and they definitely aren't fully prepared for putting a large order together for takeout.
The place is not fully set up yet. Sitting area is kinda scattered about, no real cohesion as far as decor/ambiance. It's definitely not a 5 star type of place.
Sadly, no banh mi or bubble tea.
Now for the good.
The food is good and the portions are pretty large for the price.
$8.99 for a large bowl of seafood Pho which is easily 2 meals for one person.
I also had a yellow crunchy noodle with seafood and veggies mixed with a sauce that was pretty tasty and again it was more than enough for 2 people. That came in at $12.99.
Veggies were fresh with both orders, but the shrimp looked like normal bagged shrimp from a grocery store.
Overall, they didnt re-invent anything, but it's a good place to stop if you live in the area and don't want to travel 20-30 minutes for a bowl of Pho.
