Chua Lam is a famous Singaporean columnist and food critic.
All that springs to my mind is pork lard with rice when I hear his name.
On the 5th July 2018, [Chua Lam's Pho] in Central will be serving hearty bowls of Vietnamese Pho noodles.
The Vietnamese pho is a secret recipe from Melbourne's Pho Dung, which is Chua Lam's favourite pho hence the reason he brought it to Hong Kong.
At [Chua Lam's Pho], it is probably the only pho restaurant in Hong Kong which has the machinery to make fresh Pho noodles.
I had the Special Beef Pho which was served with a side of beanshoots and herbs.
Before I tried anything, I tried the broth which was light with a natrual sweetness that was not lingering.
Then I tried the pho noodles which were amazing as they were really silky and soft yet held together when you picked them up with chopsticks.
The pho is slightly thinner compared to other pho I have tried but the texture was really good.
After adding the Basil and chili, everything came together nicely.
For big eaters like me, you can get refills at no extra cost so YES PLEASE!!!
For drinks, the Vietnamese Coffee (Cold) was really good as there was no strange aftertaste and the Vietnamese Colourful coconut ice is worth checking out too.
There is also the Vietnamese Drip Coffee which is layered with condensed milk at the bottom of the cup.
Definitely coming back for more pho!
