Rare Steak Pho

I feel like lately I have been complaining about service a lot lately, but this place has been one of the worse, as far as frustration goes. When we arrived at Golden Noodle and Grill Vietnamese Restaurant they took our order fairly quick, but it was the last thing they did quick the entire night. They also were not the most talkative.

My boyfriend ordered their rare steak pho and I got their pork vermicelli with an egg roll. They asked no questions as we ordered or really said anything. Asked if we were ready to order, stood silent as we ordered and then simply walked away when we were done talking. They brought us our food, in an ok amount of time, but again did not say a word.


Pork Vermicelli with an Egg Roll

Now at this point I would have liked to begin eating, but I am not the greatest at eating with chopsticks. I am trying to learn, but haven’t really gotten it down yet. Most places I have gone to ask if we would like a fork or at least have been very accommodating if I ask. Not here. After they gave us our food they began to literally avoid us, no matter what I did to get their attention they would look away or pretend not to see me. I tried the chopsticks, but it wasn’t going well and I was starving. Finally I got up and went to the register. The man there also ignored me. I stood there, in front of his face a good two minutes before he even acknowledge me. He wasn’t helping anyone either. After that we never interacted with another person again.


Pho Extras, Thai Tea and Water

As far as the food goes the flavor was decent, but portions were horrible. We were only offered one size pho and the amount of meat on my dish was very depressing. Price was slightly higher than most places I have been going to lately as well. I won’t be back and I don’t recommend trying them either, much better places in the area.

Egg Rolls

Pho Vietnam Kitchen has become my go to Pho place. Practically everything I have had from there has been awesome, service is wonderful, and the prices are good. My boyfriend and I come here all the time for a quick bite to eat. The woman there even recognizes us when we come in.


We have tried two of their appetizers, their regular egg rolls and their vegetarian egg rolls. I was not a fan of their regular egg rolls, but that may be a personal preference. I am realizing I don’t stomach pork and fish mixed very well and that is what their egg rolls are made of. I am however a huge fan of their vegetarian egg rolls. They are delicious! One of my absolute favorites, right up their with Happy Wok’s. They are always served piping hot and packed with veggie flavor. Mmmm my mouth waters thinking of them now.


Steak Pho


Grilled Pork and Vermicelli

Now onto the pho. The first couple of times I went there it was the same as everywhere else and I was not getting pho, simply tasting the broth, but I am proud to announce that I finally ordered my own pho, form here, and it was delicious. I do not know why I was avoiding it so much. Yes it is is soup, and if you follow my blog you know I don’t like soup and have to be in the mood for it. All of that still applies but I find myself craving it. The meat with the noodles and steamy hot broth is so comforting, especially during the winter. I loved it!


Grilled Pork and Rice

The first few times I went there, and still now, I got their pork dish. I have tried both their pork and rice and pork with vermicelli, both are delicious. The pork is flavorful and the perfect portion. I am not a huge fan of rice, but theirs suits me just fine. When it comes to their pork and vermicelli I love getting bites of lettuce, noodles, and pork, it is such a wonderful combination.
