#MakanReview : Super Saigon Pho Cafe [TTDI]

I fell in love with Banh Mi when I was in Ho Chi Minh. It doesn't look like much, I know. Basically a sandwich but my oh my, I was blown away.

So when a friend told me about this place, naturally I was sooo excited to try their version of Bahn Mi. 

Prior to visiting them, I Googled and read mixed reviews about the place. Okaaaayyyy.
Not gonna put much expectation then.

So this place is a fairly new establishment (had their soft opening end July).

Location / Traffic
TTDI is notorious for traffic congestion. Parking spots may be challenging to come by. But that's a given. 🙈 People were lining up to get inside. After a while, we noticed that the waitress actually was taking down names (reservation). Should have put a sign outside of the shop. Otherwise, people might just wait for the longest time outside. 

Rating : 2.5/5

We came at night, so it make sense that some of the menu were sold out [I hope it's actually sold out instead of not available]. 

As you might have noticed, the pricing is a bit on the high side for a bowl of noodle soup 🙊 [But of course, you'll pay hundreds to eat a bowl of noodle at a Michelin starred restaurant; just saying]

We ordered the Special Beef Combination Pho, Sliced Beef and Tendon Pho and Ice Vietnamese Milk Coffee. 

Frankly speaking, the Vietnamese coffee was not my favorite. I had better coffee at the road side in Ho Chi Minh but what would I know, I'm not an avid coffee drinker.

Pho - the serving was generous, but I would say the actual noodles were not enough for me. Maybe because I'm a big eater. The broth were delicious, together with all the condiments provided on the table. Australian beef slices were used. I don't know if RM20+ a bowl would justify.

They said this is Melbourne style Pho. What does that mean? 
It's like saying Malaysian style Tom Yum. 😔

They ran out of Banh Mi. *sigh*

Very nice decoration I would say. Instagrammable!

It can be a bit crowded though. We saw a couple having difficulties having strollers and toddlers with them.
