Pho Hung Vuong Saigon
No mistaking I really enjoy phos and especially now that winter has struck I have been hunting down pho places nearby. Footscray has been full of some great Vietnamese shops and I gave Hung Vuong the first try.
Hung Vuong is a fast food type of shop but has a nice interior and great atmosphere. This place is also busy, and I can see why. I have seen it full at 3pm so when I ate at 1pm I did have to queue up, luckily only for a minute or so.
There are many tables and by having a wide shop they can utilize a large dining area. I enjoyed the televisions at each end of the restaurant that played modern pop hits, wish I could hear it though. This loud place is kind of chaotic, yet that’s what you’d expect from such a high turnover shop.
Vietnamese In Footscray
Hung Vuong has mostly phos only, they are noodle soups with egg or rice noodles. They do have some entrees and drinks as well. The small phos are $8, medium phos are $9 and large phos are $10. Trust me, anyone with a good appetite will be sofficed with a medium, unless you are seriously hungry. I had the Sliced Chicken Breat Fillet pho and a friend had the Sliced Chicken and Sliced Beef pho. Both were fantastic with rich flavours and a fresh taste. They also supply herbs and beanshoots to add to the dish as well as hot tea on arrival.
