1816 Irving St, San Francisco, CA
Okay, I don’t know why I never review this place even though I come here very often. PPQ is my favorite pho place in the city so far because it never fails and I know I will always get the consistent and delicious bowl of pho. My family and I found this place because it was conveniently close to where we live and there are always a lot of people waiting outside for seats. When my boyfriend discovered the curry noodle on the menu, oh my gosh, it became one of the restaurant that we visit a lot and keep going back to.
Imperial Rolls - Crispy fried rolls filled with ground pork, taro, carrots, and silver noodles. Served with lettuce, mint leaves and cucumber with nuoc mam/ fish sauce
The imperial roll here is really good. Crispy outer wrap and meat filled but mushy and hot inner fillings. I could taste the taro roots in the imperial roll; it adds a strong delicious flavor to the roll. I like how they give you lettuce to wrap it just so that you can have a more balance mouth-feel for the fried roll and fresh lettuce combination.
One of my favorite pho has to be this curry chicken one. It supposes to come with vermicelli noodle but my boyfriend and I always request it to be served with pho noodle. I prefer the pho noodle because it is chewier and absorbs and holds the curry soup better. The curry is a spicy red curry and coconut milk, thus very creamy and comforting. They give you generous amount of curry and chicken breast. The chicken is very tender and taste great with the curry.
