at Pho Sac
-Ermita, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-
Try Every Restaurant in Robinsons Place (62) (see also TERRP)
Pho Sac is a Vietnamese restaurant. Emphasis on pho, but other Vietnamese mainstays also available, such as spring rolls, ban mi sandwiches, stir-fries, etc.
The pho was whatever. The noodles had either been undercooked or insufficiently soaked or were inherently hard, in any case not a great mouthfeel. The chicken was dry. The broth was bland. The basil was bitter, as were the bean sprouts, as bean sprouts in the Philippines can be. This place loses out to the other pho joint in the mall.
