    Pho real though……and on top of that the choices are either Filet Mignon or Oxtail! After a day of drinking at the pool, hanging out at Thomas Keller’s kitchen, and doing bottle service…. How would I survive the morning and shake this hangover? I have to go find some pho. 

    So the options are Zine downstairs with the fine filet mignon but with a filet mignon price tag, or cab it to Chinatown which could essentially be the same price of baller pho.  In Vegas, pool time is money so less time traveling the congested streets means more time drinking domestic beer and YOLOing at the pool. 

    The pho at Zine is pretty legit. The broth is balanced and flavorful, the meat is sufficient, and the ingredients are of high quality.  The meal definitely hit the spot and suppressed hungover effect.  However my qualms were the $18 price tag and well done filet mignon. In all, do go to Zine if you want convenient good pho.

  2. Oxtail Pho

Pork Belly Banh Xeo

Monsoon Seattle (Brunch)
The Monsoon Seattle brunch is quite a luxurious Vietnamese dining experience. The ingredients are high quality and cooking techniques carefully executed. I love when places look want to advance Vietnamese cuisine. The Oxtail pho was pretty good, fresh, and soothing for cold days. The pork belly banh xeo was cooked to perfection and the pork belly was very succulent, though I wish they had the greenleaf lettuce for wrapping. Monsoon has a higher price tag than other Vietnamese restaurants, but in exchange you get an esquisite dining experience with nicely curated Vietnamese food.
