Okay, I usually eat at Pho Dau Bo on 1125 Dundas St E
Mississauga, ON. I had no time to drive down there on my dinner break so I decided to walk into Pho 88.
I've been going to this Pho 88 since I was 12 (SINCE 1999).
The flavour was awesome before - the richness of the soup was still there.
I ordered the P.02 - Pho nam Sach (Beef brisket, tendon and tripe.) (medium)
When the waitress gave it to me, THERE WAS NO TRIPE AND TENDON.. Just Beef briskets. I told her about the tripe and tendon missing and her excuse was:
"Ohhh, maybe tripe is so small you don't see it."
What are you talking about? There was NONE~ I am honestly an AVID PHO NOODLE EATER AND SORRY TO SAY, was the FIRST time anyone got my order wrong and give me terrible tasting broth!!
For some ODD reason, the new chef made the soup taste like water, salt and beef fat. No anise, cloves, cinnamon, coriander seed, not even a hint of garlic!!! OMG, WHAT KIND OF PHO NOODLE DISH IS THIS? WATERY SALTY BEEF FAT!
I gave constructive criticism towards the waitress hoping she would pass on the room for improvement. But I'm sure she wanted to ignore me.
This place is not the best place to get the full rich broth you would expect from an authentic Pho Beef Noodle dish.
GO TO PHO DAU BO. THE BEST BROTH IN THE LOCAL AREA!!!!!
