A bunch of us went to Pho 99 for a light lunch. Vietnamese food is characterized by light and clear flavours, so one doesn't go back to the office feeling bloated and/or full.
The Pho Bo Vien Nam ($8) was generously served with tender sliced beef and beef balls in a robust but light beef broth.
The Beef Ball Pho Bo ($8) was also slurpilicious. The steaming hot soup was heady, but still very light.
I wasn't too hungry, so I got the Pho Ga ($7) chicken soup, sans noodles. This was chicken soup for the soul, Vietnamese style. It was a tad oily, but still very delicate and light, with crunchy beansprouts adding a refreshing element.
Another colleague also wasn't too hungry so lke me, he got the Pho Bo, sans noodles ($8).
