HERBAL PHO FROM THIS VIETNAMESE CHAIN | Pho Hoa | This longstanding restaurant chain dishes out bowls of pho in eight different countries and claims to be the largest Vietnamese fast-casual-dining chain in the world. Its only Singapore outlet at Holland Village is always busy during mealtimes. The service may be surly, but the pho is good. Expect a rich, herbal broth with a stronger beef taste than most. The portions for the soup and the add-ons (beansprouts, lime and basil) are generous. There is no standard order for beef combination noodles: here you choose your cuts of beef from the basic pho tai (eye round steak, small $12.95, large $14.95), to a heartier pho tai, nam, gan (tendon, flank, and eye round steak, small $13.95, large $15.95) or the complete works such as the pho chin, nam, gau, gan, ve don (brisket, flank, tendon, fatty, and crunchy flank, small $15.95, large $17.95).
