pho 54 cabramatta

It’s not Studio 54, but Pho 54 is as hip and almost as retro.  It’s been around for at least 20 years and it has been continuously popular aided by a very loyal fan base that promote the restaurant through word of mouth.

Pho 54 gets its name in the usual Vietnamese convention of using the street number.  It’s on 54 Park Road in the Cabramatta mall.  It’s a small restaurant, but the owners have made the most of the space.

The noodlies, mint and sprouts are clean and fresh, but as always, it’s the soup that sets a good pho apart from the also-rans.  While Pho Tau Bay’s soup is sweet and Pho Minh more salty from the fish sauce, Pho 54 is smooth and balanced and yet still very tasty.  And as you can see from the picture, extremely well presented, to the point of being mouth-watering!
