Vietnamese Restaurant, Pho Kien Giang, Bun Bo Hue, Pinellas Park, Florida

pho kienAfter the delicious Bun Bo Hue at Pho 97 I decided to give it a try at Pho Kien, up the road a bit. The minute it arrived I could smell a bit of what I think was Cumin, but not for sure. At first taste the broth was just a bit spicier than at Pho 97, but not at all over the top.
Yes it sure seemed like a bit of cumin, but the  both was very pleasant. The noodle and the meat were fine and traditional. No surprises just the way I prefer it. A banh Mi from the Sai Gon next door to take home for a bit later.

pho kienI want comfortable when I go to a restaurant. And I want authentic food when I am comfortable. And I don’t go to a restaurant for “home Cookin”. If I wanted home cooking I would do it at home for less money and better. The broth for pho, if done properly, takes hours letting the bone marrow give up its goodness and richness to the broth. I want real Nouc Mam, not watered down. I want things called what they are called in the country of origin, not cutesy western names. My 3 favorite Pho houses are in this neighborhood. I will be back…again, and again
