too bad the meal was a disappointment.


Thanks for the inspiration. What with this cold weather and all....soup weather!


Oh dear, I can even feel the "dryness" of those beef slices from just looking at your picture!


hi kirk
hey, you beat me to it! i was going to blog pho 888 last october. i had one of those buy one get one free coupons in october. my gay boyfriend and i were going to go eat there, but the restaurant wasn't even opened yet, even though the coupon said 'Grand Opening on October whatever, 2008'. WTF, right?

We were kind of bummed, so we ate at Pho Vinh instead, which is down the street, next to sleazy hotel 7 and a tatoo parlor.

by the way, if you recall, pho 888 is the former site of the Argentinian place Tango Grille (which you blogged awhile back) which went under about a year or so ago. it then became a mediterranean food place, then that folded. lastly, it was a generic mexican place before morphing into pho 888.

that beef looked pretty bad. thanks for taking this one so i wouldn't have to! spring rolls alone won't justify a visit for me.


Hi Kat - This place had really nice service, and good Cha Gio...but too bad the Pho didn't deliver.

Hi Jan - Yes Pho...or even better good Bun Bo Hue sound great.

Hi Michelle - The beef was unusually dry....

Hi CC - Funny thing, this is the second set of owners...they took over in January. You know, I'm getting old and can't remember stuff as well. Pho Hiep is much better.
