有次一個人經過開灣仔, 由於睇到幾多好既食評所以之前 bookmark 左呢間打算試下,叫左個最貴既生牛河試,食物就一般唔會難食,但又未至於我會再想特登番你食,因為佢個 location 都唔係方便,另外佢有張好似拉麵紙比你填。間餐廳好細,所以如果坐滿人你都唔會想坐得耐。價錢我覚得未好食到值呢D價。 continue reading

I had heard rave reviews about this Vietnamese pho restaurant so I must confess that I came in with high expectations. We came here for lunch on a weekday. The two of us ordered a premium raw beef pho and a standard raw beef pho. The premium raw beef pho came first but the beef was completely cooked, when asked the waitress explained to us that because the broth was so hot while the beef slices were so thin that they were cooked instantly in the hot broth. However, the broth was not hot at all so we did not buy that argument. Next came the standard raw beef pho and luckily, the beef was still just half cooked this time. Honestly, we couldn't taste the difference between the premium one and the standard one, and the broth was nothing outstanding, I have had better elsewhere. The noodles itself were nothing inspiring either. We ordered a steam rice roll to share and I wouldn't even call it average, it was bad : the fillings were bland and the rice roll was not silky at all, instead it was gooey and lacked any rice flavour. They do not offer lunch sets here so you have to order drinks separately. We ordered an iced Vietnamese coffee, at $38 I was expecting the whole Vietnamese coffee dripping cup thing but nope, it was just an ordinary glass of iced coffee with condensed milk at the bottom. Great. Half way into our meal people started to queue up outside the shop, but honestly, what's with all the hype? Costing more than $100 for a bowl of pho with drinks not included, you can almost certainly get better food elsewhere any time. continue reading

日前在灣仔頗有名氣的Brass Spoon,吃了一碗質素很高的越南生熟牛肉河。此店的湯很鮮亦十分順喉,牛味濃淡適中,純以湯頭計肯定是港島之冠。至於其河粉夠晒滑溜,至少唔會黏埋一舊,而且食落嗦嗦聲。牛肉方面,這裏生牛肉的比較熟的為佳,肉呈美麗的粉紅色,令人食慾大增。這碗pho以香港來說水準甚佳,但不用加一也要$85,其實有點貴,便宜廿蚊會較具性價比。聽聞此店很旺場,但我去的時候是近午時差不多結束時,所以很快便有得食。 continue reading

Don't want to read the long post?Quick summary:Food: A bit on the bland side but overall an above average experiencePricing: Definitely on the high end for Pho, not exactly worth the value in my opinionEnvironment: Store is small and has maybe 20 seats but did not feel cramped at all.A bit of background, I work nearby and have wanted to try this restaurant for the longest time. I've tried to go at least 10 times over the last half year and at least 5 times in 2017 alone; however it's been a flurry of letdowns with "Closed" messages plastered on the door, "Sold Out" showed at 12;05 or just obscenely long waits. It's quite a turn off everytime i round the corner and see no one in line but this weirdly made me want to come here and try it even more.I finally got the opportunity to today (12:05 pm) and while it was a good meal, it was definitely not worth the hype. Let's break down the meal.Food:The menu is quite straight forward with essentially Beef Pho and Spring rolls as the only 2 offerings. There are multiple toppings that you can add which include Beef Balls, Raw/cooked Beef, Tripe etc at a charge but there's no chicken, pork or fish for anyone who doesn't eat Beef. The menu resembles that of a typical Ramen shop with lots of customization with (Hold/Less/More/Standard) being offered for Beef Oil, Scallions, Onions and  Coriander. I went with a pretty straight forward bowl with everything being standard except for more on the onions. There are 4 "base" options for Beef Pho which are your typical, Premium, Raw, Cooked and Raw + Cooked beef Pho. My colleague and I ordered a bowl each, with multiple additional toppings and a spring roll and the portions were a bit small. The broth was clear, aromatic and tasted relatively clear of MSG (Not 100% sure on this) but ultimately i thought it came off as bland after a few spoon fulls. I was disappointed with the amount of toppings even after adding about 50-60 dollars worth to my bowl. I can't remember exactly but I got 2 beef balls for 12 dollars, a couple very thinly sliced pieces of Vietnamese sausage for 10 and you get the point. While I'm not one to complain about value when it comes to great tasting food, I thought it should be made clear when conducting a thorough review! The noodles were another area of disappointment for me. There was no option for 金邊粉 and as I've stressed before in my search for the best bowl, i believe these are the best noodles to go with when having Pho. I understand that it may not be everyone's preference of noodles but the lack of the option did not add points in my book. Environment: The restaurant was in a small quaint shop and while there were seats at every available spot within, i didn't feel cramped. The store was clean and well managed, probably due to the large amount of offtime they have, and i definitely felt comfortable eating here. Price:The pricing is obviously on the higher end. I don't feel like it was worth the price that was set but i can see the need for a premium price range. At 80$ a bowl, with no additional toppings or noodles, I would say that even the smallest of appetites would not be satisfied let alone a regular person. The additional toppings were also priced a bit too high with not much being provided per choice. Lastly, the 55$ spring roll featured 4 tiny spring rolls that while tasted decent, once again were not worth anywhere near that price.All in all, Brass Spoon was 100% not worth the hype that surrounded it. Be it colleagues, friends or Open Rice reviews, the combination of taste/environment/hype did not reflect the price and prep needed to have such an experience. I will say that it's slightly better then an average bowl of Pho from your neighborhood Vietnamese restaurant but to say that you'd have to pay a 50%+ premium on that same bowl, the choice is clear. continue reading

我們週末4pm 左右經過,見到有不少人在店內用餐,所以就打算試一試!唔睇OpenRice 都唔個係米芝連一星,仲要排隊先有得食。我們好好彩,不用等位就食到好野。一坐低店員會俾點菜紙你,好似拉麵店咁可以揀麵的硬度,湯濃度,要唔要蔥,芫茜,油等等。第一次見到食pho都有咁好的安排,好貼心。麵來了,好大個碗好多湯呀!like 爆!我們成碗麵連湯清哂!d湯好清甜,牛肉好滑又唔鞋,食得出唔係平野。整體來說,非常滿意另外點了一份春卷,剛剛炸好,夠哂熱外面脆卜卜,好味道如果唔洗排隊,可以一試啊! continue reading
