Trying Pho For The First Time At 3 Pho Bowl 09

I love noodles. I've eaten a ton of ramen in my life. When I was first married and we had no money, Cup-O-Noodles was a staple in the house. 30 cents for a meal? Yes please! And they came in a variety of flavors, so it took at least a week for us to get bored of them.

Anyway.

I know noodle places have become more popular, so I wanted to try one. We were visiting my mom, so we decided to try a place near her house called 3 Pho Bowl 09 in Schertz, Texas.




Now, because I've never eaten Pho before, I didn't know how to order it or what kind I should order. Beef? Chicken? Veggie? However, it was okay, because this place explains how to do it:



(I love how it's all END OF INSTRUCTION.)


I ended up with the beef. Natalie wanted the honeydew Boba tea, which yes,  tasted like honeydew.






The place is small, but set up in a comfortable way. There are colorful drawings on the wall to give it a homey feel.





The pho is wheeled out to you. Here's what mine looked like:





My daughter got the shrimp:





They also have some greens, if you want to make it healthy, but hot and sweet sauce. I put a ton of hot sauce in mine.





It was delicious. The only flaw I could find is Pepsi products were served, and I prefer Coke. I would go back! The kids and my mom agreed. I think it was everyone's first time trying Pho.




We also tried the Vietnamese Spring Rolls, which were delicious:




If you're ever in the Schertz area, pop into 3 Pho Bowl 09. There is also a military discount! Have you ever tried Pho before?

  4. We really enjoy Pho, although we haven't had any for a while. Time to remedy that. The comment about Pepsi made me laugh. I prefer coke too.

  6. Can I just say how much I LOVE that they provide a "how to PHO for the first time" cheat sheet? That's amazing. That being said, I've never had and would need to follow it! How fun!

  10. I love pho and Vietnamese spring rolls which I love dipping them in peanut sauce. By the way I wanted to mention to you that zi have started writing like you in the form of writing non fiction stories to be added to future books. I just finished writing an unpublished memoir. Anyhow do you know any publisher or agent that I can get my book self published? The reason I am asking you is because I know you got some books published yourself If you can help me in any way you can email me at Marin12@tekus.net. And by the way my name is Marina

  11. Pho is quite popular here in Western Canada where I am from since in Vancouver we have a very big Asian population so hence all the Vietnamese places and such. And all the Bubble tea places too

  23. We also had Pho at a Vietnamese restaurant here before. The serving was huge so I wasn't able to finish it. But it was good.
