Phat Pho

MAITA QUESADA, the charming PR princess of the Moment Group (restaurants include Cue Modern Barbecue, Nam Nam, Burger Bar and 8 Cuts) invited us to try PHAT PHO in Serendra a couple of weeks ago.

PHAT PHO, a vietnamese restaurant, originated from Cebu and was brought to Manila in corroboration with ABACA group & Moment. PHAT means PRETTY HOT AND TASTY.. so yeah, you may call me PHAT any time! ;))

I was so happy because she included my kids in the invite. Lately it’s just been me & Kap so I’ve missed having my kids eat out with us. This was a very welcome treat. <3

THE AMAZING FOOD. I’m not exaggerating. I find most Vietnamese food bland, but these peeps from PHAT PHO did something to make it acculturate to the Filipino taste. Try it to believe. Hindi ako mapapahiya, promise. (Yes, some sort of tagalog to balance the nosebleed word “acculturate” lels.)

Maita asked us to try these chocolate covered cream puffs which aren’t for sale yet & are on its testing stage. We are happy to be guinea pigs anytime Maita. Just say the word & we’ll be there! ;))

 

Thank you so very much Maita for inviting us to dinner at PHAT PHO. It is now my favorite Vietnamese restaurant. <3 Best thing about PHAT PHO is the price is so affordable that it’s Kap-approved! We will certainly go back for more Pho goodness! <3

And thank you Richard & Irene for the suhathe yummiest QDB cheesecake in the world! <3 As you have seen, we couldn’t wait a second longer & attacked your gifts right after our dinner whilst still in the resto, lels. You spoil us too much, which is why we love you guys!! :-*

        Yez, if I can afford it there, definitely mura diyan, hahaha… Their “small” servings pa lang nakakabusog na. BTW, might be in the Alabang/Las Pinas area tomorrow afternoon, pero I’m sure may appointment ka ulit, hahaha… just FYI para kung may makita kang post ko sa instagram, di ka mabigla. =)
