Continuing on my quest to find a good pho place in San Antonio, but this was not it. The menu was all in English, so that made it suspect right off. The pho here, as at Pho An, was more expensive than a typical pho place but the portion was fairly large. They had a wider selection of pho too, but the pho itself was just average and edible. I ordered the egg rolls and they were big, fat, and the wrapping was the cheap kind that made the egg rolls look like a blistery burn victim. I forgot to mention in my last Vietnamese restaurant (Pho An) review, that they did use the good wrapping on their egg rolls. There is a difference in taste. Vietnamese egg rolls shouldn't be fat like an overstuffed burrito and the wrapping (at least if they use the more expensive, good kind) should be smooth and come out golden in color unless they burn them in the fryer. These egg rolls had the cheap, blistery wrapping that I've seen at most of the pho restaurants around here. The filling in the egg rolls were okay, but the dipping fish sauce was bland. I don't know if they make it bland to make it more palatable for Americans, or that's just how the cook makes it. I had an aunt who also made bland fish sauce, so that's always a possibility. I also ordered the Bun This Nuong (which I think is listed as Noodles With Pork Meat) to go as that is the other dish I judge Vietnamese restaurants on. I had that for dinner, and it was also average. The fish sauce, as I mentioned previously was bland, and the meat was okay. Not a place I would go out of my way to go to again, just another average pho place.
