LA eats – phorage

Brian and I fell in love with the dish pho when traveling through Vietnam this past spring. There is just something so satisfying about a big bowl of noodles with slices of tender meat and fresh herbs, especially when you add hot sauce to the mix! We have both been craving it ever since we returned, so we did some research and found a restaurant in Los Angeles, called Phorage that had great reviews. It was decided that we would go there for lunch rather than dinner because really is there anything worse than going to bed with a belly full of noodles? I think not.

You would never know that the restaurant was there unless you were looking for it. It’s a teeny tiny place located in the corner of a strip mall. This immediately tells me I’m in for a horrible or fabulous meal- there really isn’t a middle ground in such a situation. Luckily, the meal was fabulous. The menu is small but that doesn’t matter because they do each dish right. We had three options when ordering our pho…washugyu beef and brisket, free range chicken or natural oxtail. Brian and I both settled on the beef and brisket combo. Brian also ordered a Jidori chicken Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwich) & a Cafe Sua Da (Vietnamese ice coffee). Clearly, there were going to be leftovers.

The meal was so damn good. I felt like I was transported back to the streets of Vietnam!
