I couldn’t even wait to tell you guys about this place. After working all day on the nursery (crib is up, carpet is in, decorating has begun), we decided we needed a date night bad. We had seen a Vietnamese place pop up in an old sushi place (which we loved), and decided it was worth a try. It’s called Pho Pho, and it’s located downtown in Five Points, next to the old Metro Prime Steakhouse.
We got there sort of early and were the only people there –which was nice, because who likes people anyway? Our waiter was awesome, and B suggested I try my first boba tea. Apparently, these things are also called bubble tea and are really popular everywhere else but Birmingham. I played it safe and got the strawberry one.
I was super obsessed with the cup, and the stuff inside. It really pretty much tasted like strawberry milk – like the most awesome kind of strawberry milk you could ever have – and I will be back to test out some more of their flavors.
For dinner, B ordered some spring rolls as an appetizer — the legit spring rolls, not the fried ones. He got some sushi rolls for his dinner, and I got a delicious noodle bowl, that had the most amazing pork in it. Please see below.
It was honestly the best Vietnamese food I’d had. They are currently working on their liquor license, but don’t have it yet. I need everyone in Bham to go and check them out, because I will be really really sad if they have to close up shop.
I mean, I’ve only gotten to try one boba tea!
I hope everyone had a great weekend !!
