pHoHd at 100am Koufu Food Court


A phở shop has opened at stall number 14 in the fourth floor Koufu food court at 100am. I was a bit puzzled at first, as there were no bean sprouts, basil, nor other herbs. So I figured that maybe it was North Vietnamese instead. But then it didn't have any onions either. Still, I was surprised by how much I liked the broth, in part because it was pretty peppery (a bit like bak kut teh), in part since it was a earthier than usual (was that fennel that I tasted?), and in part because I think they spiked it with MSG. I don't know if I'd call this phở, but I'd eat it again, especially since the side benefit of not having any onions in there is that I won't to go back to the office with dragon breath.
