Rating: More than just Pho
Mama Hong’s has been on my list for a while.
Decor is more “built” out than most small Vietnamese places.
The menu isn’t huge, and is most — but fortunately not all — Pho. There are a few salads and Banh Mi too.
Condiments are on the table.
Pork sausage spring rolls. I like this kind — because I love the ground up pig.
Filet Mignon Pho. Solid Pho. With the filet, you don’t have the weird tendon bits. Broth flavor was good. Still I have to jazz up Pho with a lot of hoisin.
It’s nice to have another Vietnamese option in Santa Monica but I wish they would branch out more into the type of less street food dishes like Garlic and Chives which is SO GOOD but SO FAR.
