Pho PHD, Marrickville, Sydney Inner West

Another trip to Marrickville means another obligatory post about pho! In addition to my many visits to the Vietnamese eateries in Marrickville (see previous posts via the search function above) here is one about one of the stalwarts of the pho scene.

PHD is one of the eateries that have been around for quite a while. They were super popular and now have 2 branches both in Marrickville - one on Marrickville road and the other on Illawarra road. The menus are the same but if one is full you can try your luck at the other.

This time we went to the Marrickville road branch for an early lunch. Not too many people here so we could choose where we sat. Unfortunately no complimentary tea here but there is table water.

Pork spring rolls - $11 - for starters we got the classic spring roll. Pork mince and vegies wrapped in crisp pastry deep fried to perfection. Crunchy and piping hot when brought to the table the tangy sauce went very well as an accompaniment.

Pho Tai - Beef pho -$12 - the pho here comes in 3 sizes - regular, medium and large. With prices ranging from $12 to a whopping $19. We got the regulars which actually wasn't too small in size. Plenty of beef slices but just a bit lacking in the noodle department. The soup was bit on the sweeter side but packed with real beef flavour. As you can see from the photo, the soup is a bit oily. 

Complimentary beansprouts, basil and lime.
