Simply Pho

Although winter is officially over...it doesn't seem to be the case here in Canberra!
Apart from last Friday's unusually hot day, Canberra has been either cold, windy, rainy or all of those combined *sigh
Well...winter has got its benefits too. That means i am able to savour pipping hot noodle soups without sweating like a pig! On this occasion we happened to stumble upon Simply Pho in Gungahlin - a small place with clean surrounds and an relaxed atmosphere. The staff was super friendly and efficient.

We started out with some Rice Paper Rolls (Pork) which were alright but nothing fancy.

We then proceeded to devour our pho(s): Simply Pho (premium rare beef and meat balls) and Pho Combo (rare beef, brisket, soft tendon, tripe and meat balls). Since they both looked almost identical, I only took a photo of one Pho dish. The rare beef was served quite rare (as pictured below) and I had to wait for a bit until it was semi-rare to enjoy it (if you like your beef cooked through then you will have to wait a bit longer). The components in the Pho Combo were good and the soft tendon was my favorite. The meat balls were quite nice as well and overall the bowl of pho felt quite light and clean as opposed to the hearty and filling-feel that I usually get from having phos.
Veredict: I am not sure if I liked it or not but it felt healthier though. Although next time in Gungahlin I would certainly take away their Saigon Roll which seemed quite popular =)
