Today I’ve got a bit of a different restaurant post for you as it’s going to be based on two separate trips instead of one. Pho Main Street is a vietnamese restaurant not far from me and it’s on Main Street, naturally.
Both times I’ve ben there I got an order of spring rolls for an appetizer. They are tasty and not too greasy, which is always a plus.
It is served on some large leaves of lettuce and pickled carrots and turnips, which I love.
Last time I went to the restaurant it was a pretty warm day so I wasn’t really in the mood for soup. I got the Banh Mi Thjt Nur’ong, which is a grilled pork sandwich with pickled turnips, carrots, and cucumbers. It is delicious and the pork is seasoned superbly. The bread is nice and crisp and the pork doesn’t make the bread soggy or anything at all!
This time around (yesterday) it was chilly and windy out, which was the perfect weather for a nice hot soup dish. I got the Pho Tai, Nam, Gau which is a Pho with well done steak, flank, and brisket. And if you don’t know what pho is, it’s a Vietnamese rice noodle. It was super yummy and the flavors in the beef broth were delectable. A plate with bean sprouts was also left on the table for anyone who ordered pho.
Both meals were delicious and it’s hard to say which was better. They were both good, but different. It’s always nice to have options!
Pho Main Street doesn’t have a website, but it is in Bridgewater, NJ. Check it out next time you’re in the mood for vietnamese food!
