Today Phillip took me to Fisherman’s Table so I could have pho for lunch; I love pho so much, and it was the third time I’ve had pho for lunch this week, What?! It’s delicious and I’m sick, and the soup and noodles feel amazing on my sore throat.
Fisherman’s Plate is a small fish and chip shop on Bond Street; it’s unassuming, small and a bit dingy, but the food is AMAZING. My friend Rochelle took me there so we could get pho a couple of months ago, and I have been hooked on the place ever since. I was looking forward to getting some over the Christmas beak, but they closed so they could refurbish/give the place a paint job. I was pretty gutted, but the place is looking a lot brighter.
If you haven’t had pho, you need to try it. It consists of rice noodles and raw beef which is cooked in a seasoned beef broth; it also come with lettuce, mint, coriander, chilli, chilli sauce, a slice of lemon and sprouts that you add to customise the pho to suite your taste (today we each had a bowl, I threw in half the chillies, and all of my chilli sauce; I LOVE spicy food).
If you’re in town, and you love pho, I can highly recommend this place (Phillip, who hates brothy food, loved his; he left most of the broth behind, but still); I have already promised Corrine, I’ll take her there for lunch when she’s in town next.
Are there any assuming places where you live that have surprised you with amazing food? I would love to know! xx
