Pho Toan Thang, Homebush West, Sydney west

Guest blogger edition

Pho Toan Thang is one of the Vietnamese restaurants in Homebush that is pretty much guaranteed to have a huge line of people waiting for a table. This is especially the case should you try to come at lunch or dinner time on a weekend. Having said that, if you don't mind sharing a table with random strangers (in the name of good food of course), then the turnover is quite quick and you'll get a table in no time.

Inside, it's like a typical Vietnamese restaurant, complete with cutlery, condiments and complimentary tea set up on all tables. There's both Vietnamese and some Chinese cuisine here with both being equally as popular with the patrons. Make your order and it'll be at your table within minutes.

Beef and beef ball pho ~$11 - Strangely, beef balls and beef pho wasn't on the standard menu, but when asked it was readily available. Juicy meatballs, rare beef slowly cooking in the hot hot soup. Slippery handmade rice noodles and a clean broth which seems less oily and less heavy on the herbs that other phos sometimes have. A great pho.

The usual side dish of pho.

Satay beef vermicelli ~$15 - Ordered this along with a bowl of steamed rice to soak up all those delicious satay sauces. The beef was soft and tender mixed with chunks of capsicum and pineapple. The pineapple was a bit of a strange addition but added a burst of sweetness to the dish. The vermicelli was top notch -full of flavour after soaking up all that satay sauce.
