With the cool snap (finally) coming to Brisbane, a friend and I decided it would be a nice time to have a hot soupy meal for lunch. Not wanting to walk too far (and having heard that Kadoya is relocating), we thought it would be a good time to try out Little Saigon Grill, which has quite an online following.
Aside from the food available on the display cabinet, there was also an assortment of cooked foods on the menu, including noodles, rice, sides and drinks.
The display cabinet contained a large assortment of rice paper rolls and salads.
Of course, we ordered hot food though, and were given a buzzer to wait for when the food is ready.
Despite wanting hot noodles, we shared one of the bbq pork rice paper rolls, just so that we could sample it for the blog. For a cool day, we found it to be slightly chilly, and whilst there was quite a bit of bbq pork on display, the inside was again mostly filled with noodles. Thankfully there was quite a bit of peanut sauce to give it more flavours.
Our mains were, as usual, pho. We ordered the "go large", and were surprised to receive a bowl that was slightly more than half full. We were also not too impressed with it being served with all the sprouts and leaves mixed in, as my companion was not too much of a fan of sprouts (which worked to bulk up the bowl even more). The soup itself was very strong and had quite a bit of bite to it, despite being on the sweeter end of the spectrum. The beef though, was definitely overcooked for "rare", but the noodles were fresh and soft. I only wish that there could have been a bit more.
