Pho Bistro 2

A hidden gem located just outside the hustle and bustle of Waikiki on the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and Fern Street is Pho Bistro 2. This eatery is a very popular restaurant for the Phở connoisseurs in Honolulu — locals and visitors alike.

Since my friend was sponsoring my lunch today, I decided to order the oxtail Phở, not only for its onolicious taste, but, also for the quantity of the serving. My friend decided on the Phở ga – chicken – with all the basil, bean sprouts as the side condiments.

And, just as fate would happen only in Honolulu, another husband and wife couple that my friend knew sat at the adjacent table. They both ordered the House Special Phở combo that had a selection of different meats with the rice noodles.

Everyone ate their respective dishes in the usual way except for me.

As you view the pics, you’ll notice that my order came with the noodles served on the side which is an option. By ordering in this fashion, you can have two meals in one. After I was finished consuming the oxtail portion of the meal, I added the noodles to my large bowl of broth and vegetables, thereby creating a two for one special.

We all enjoyed the onolicous food and great conversation during the meal so much that my friend almost missed his business meeting. If you’re lucky enough, you can watch the ducks frolic in the mud stream
next to the restaurant.

Until next time!

    This was our favorite Vietnamese restaurant in Honolulu! Unfortunately, we can’t find anything quite like it in Seoul.

    That reminds me, I heard the owner of Pho Bistro 2 was actually looking into opening a restaurant here in Korea… can someone get a status update for us?? (If it’s been here all along and we just didn’t know about it, what a bittersweet feeling that would be…)

    Pho Bistro 2 is one of my favorite pho places on the island!  Also when you’re not in the mood for pho, their Oxtail Soup is another excellent choice!  Big generous pieces of oxtail and a delicious soup to go with it!
