Ice-blended Vietnamese drip coffee with avocaodo (RM7.90)
I tend to drop by at Pho Hoa whenever I can't think of anything else to eat at The Curve. This is because they make a mean ice-blended vietnamese drip coffee with avocado that is simply divine,

Vietnamese Chicken Salad (RM4.90 or 5.90)
and value-for-money vietnamese salads that are better than average and come in generous portion.

Vietnamese Grilled Beef Salad (RM4.90 or 5.90)

Their appetizers are not bad either, I usually go for

Summer Rolls (pretty ordinary but I like summer rolls), and also their steamed egg cake.

Do not be mistaken, this is not the usual Chinese steamed egg cake ("kai tan kou") but a savoury version. Filled with egg and minced chicken, it tasted rather appetizing and yummy when eaten warm. Rather filling as well.

Beef Pho and accompanying condiments
I have stolen bites from my friend's orders of Chicken Pho and Beef Pho and I have to say that the latter is much better than the former. Also, you get to choose your preferred cut of meat or even parts.

During one of my earlier visits, my friend urged me to try this drink, Blended Avocado Juice. Didn't quite like it, tasted somewhat bland to me and definitely lacked behind when compared to the Ice Blended Vietnamese Drip Coffee with avocado (pictured above).

Interesting place...but seems like a lot of meat though (as in all Vietnamese food:p)
I am more interested in the ice-blended drinks though...avocado!:D
And I think I still prefer the normal steamed egg cakes...haha:)

Hi christy,
Don't worry. The good thing is that the meat is usually complemented by lotsa vege.. :)

Hi joe,
Do you like ice-blended coffee? If yes, I strongly recommend this. But frankly, it can be rather filling. If I am not too hungry, one glass of this is enough to fill up my stomach.

Hi Daphne,
Ya, those summer rolls are easy to make actually. Just need to prepare the condiments.

Hi meiyen,
Ya, I remember reading your review on this place before. In fact, I think I wanted to try the steamed egg thingy after reading your review. haha.

Hi ai wei, ilovepearly, christine,
Worth a try if you haven't. But don't go with too high expectation. To me, it's more like a fast-food style vietnamese place. ;)

Hi precious pea,
Ok, coming up soon! ;-p
