By reading the name literally, the first thing that come to mind is that "Oh! It's a Vietnamese Restaurant." Well, you are absolutely wrong. At Pho Hoang, you will find many delicious Asian food. This restaurant is frequented by neighbourhood locals and employees working in the vicinity.
At Pho Hoang, you will not need to be concerned about the food taste. The food retained its Asian flavours without much adaptation. You will definitely sate our Asian appetite.
The Curry Beef Stew Noodle Soup (咖喱牛腩面) serves noodles cooked in Malaysian-style curry coconut milk broth with soft tender beef chunk briskets. Priced at USD12, it came with a large serving of noodle soup. The curry beef stew was rich in flavours and the beef chunks were indeed very tender. (Food rating: 3/5)
One of the more popular dishes was the Three Treasures Over Rice (三宝饭). The portion can fill the stomachs of two persons. The three treasures include the roasted pork belly, BBQ pork and roasted chicken. The roasted pork belly (烧肉) had a golden brown crispy skin and you would hear "crackling" sounds when you chew the meat. The meat was tender and juicy. The BBQ pork (叉烧肉) was caramelised with sweet plum sauce and roasted. The meat has delicious sweet BBQ flavour and, of course, tender juicy. The portion of rice was extremely generous. As advised, this is suitable for sharing. This was one of my comfort food whenever I needed Asian food. (Food rating: 4.5/5)
The 4-piece Peking Roasted Duck Buns (北京鸭) was alright too. The restaurant serves generous portions of cucumber strips, and duck skin and meat. The hoisin sauce drizzled onto the duck meat was just nice. I have tried peking duck buns from Pho Hoang and Corner 28. Between the two, I personally liked Corner 28 more. (Food rating: 3/5)
