Food: Pho Ever
This was my third time coming to Pho Ever, and I've loved every single experience. There was a line outside the door of people waiting to be seated. Clearly, this place had a good reputation, otherwise, people wouldn't be waiting in the cold just to get a table! I overheard that the crowd, when me and my friends went, was actually not as bad as it was on a Friday. Wow.
They definitely gave us ample time to peruse the menu. Once we've placed our order, they delivered our waters and a bowl of utensils (pictured above). Considering the number of people in the restaurant, the wait for our food wasn't actually that bad. I really appreciated that the food looked fresh and of great quality.
I got #35 - Steamed rice with BBQ chicken and salad. The chicken was tender and simply delightful. The dressing was my fave and I immediately poured it over my salad. The salad itself was so green and fresh that I was excited to eat it. Mind you, I'm not a salad person. The rice wasn't anything memorable. It was a bit dry, but I didn't mind it.
The service was also top notch. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Regardless of the busy environment, they didn't seem stressed or tired. I really enjoyed the vibe of the restaurant. I even overheard customers thanking the owner as they were leaving. One person even said that the food was great, as always.
If you're in the San Diego area, I definitely would recommend them if you're in the mood for Vietnamese food. They're located at 485 S Melrose Dr., Vista, CA 92081.
