Mignon Pho + Grill

Nice beer list, plus cow blowing a bubble.

Spring rolls--fine.

Lemongrass garlic fries--neither especially lemongrassy nor garlicky.

People were very excited about this pomegranate limeade, to the point of ordering seconds.

We only took one pho picture because they looked exactly the same.

Cow Ate My Shrimp (That's actually what it's called).

Pig a Chick.
You get a little bowl of broth with the broken rice dishes. 
The broth is actually really good!  Much better than the first time I (Jenne) came here.

  • Everything was adequate, but not amazing.
  • The waitress was careful to mention that the broth is more subtle than at most other pho restaurants.
  • I (Miko) strongly prefer the Tai rare steak to the "filet mignon" in pho.  It's too soft and thick.
  • Egg rolls are pretty delish, but not any more delish than at other places.
  • Lovely selection of alcohol. 
  • You get free refills for fountain drinks.  Very rare for pho restaurants!
