Quick Chop! Pho SA

Pho SA - 42 Currie St, Adelaide

Started by the owners of internationally renowned (joke) Adelaide Pho, a pleasant new location right near the hustle and bustle of Leigh/Peel street has emerged.

Keeping with what works well, the menu is - as far as I (Cam) can tell, mostly the same. The decor is uplifted and a little more fancy. Reminiscent of Ming's Palace, it features round tables and a lot more space.

The place was unusually quiet and hasn't seemed to draw the attention that its older sister does, but the quality of the food is directly on par.

Small Pho - $12
I had a custard apple smoothie and a small bowl of combination pho. The tendons were soft and melting, which was a relief as I've been served crunchy tendons before and don't want to re-live that terrible textural experience....ever again! The broth had the perfect signature depth of flavour while remaining clear and light. Served with all the expected accompaniments, it keeps at the same pleasant price point.

Service was lovely and the space well kept. I just can't seem to figure out why no one was in there. Hopefully it won't remain a hidden gem for too long, for businesses sake.

Vegetarian/vegan friendly: Some vegetarian options outside pho
Child friendly: The space is sufficient but not specifically catered for children

Service: 4.5/5
Ambience: 4/5 (a little empty)
Food: 9/10

In total OTCB gives Pho SA 17.5/20 chops on The Chopping Board.
