Pho Hoa and Cafe Mary Grace – Greenbelt

Met up with my bestboybud Mike before he went to New York. He wanted salad. I wanted soup.


So we went to Pho Hoa. Did you know that PHO is supposed to be pronounced like FUH and not FOE? Now, you know.


Mikey had thr Pho Do Vien or the Seafood Noodle Soup (195php). Mine was Pho Gau Gan or Brisket and Tendon Noodle Soup (265php).


We also had some Fresh Spring Rolls (130php) served with something that looked like thick hoisin sauce that tasted nutty.


I haven’t tried any of their other noodle soups; I’ve always been stuck on beef. Can’t help it, the meat is really tender and the soup is comforting.


Too bad they didn’t have fish sauce. I wanted to mix it with some lemon and chili as dipping sauce for the beef. I just spiked my soup with some Sriracha sauce so in the end all was good. Almost.


For dessert, I had Mango Crepe with Ice Cream (150php) and it’s a great end to a savory-spicy meal. Vanilla ice cream, sweet mangoes, and pandan crepe. Delish!


Pho Hoa serves coffee but we just went to Cafe Mary Grace for some iced lattés (110php), brownies, food for the gods, and lemon squares (15-25php).
