Pho Chu The

92 Hopkins St
Footscray, 3011

After we found Sekai shutting on a Monday evening, despite the sign saying it was going to be open every day from 10:30am - 8:30pm, we headed across the road to Pho Chu The.  The shop window was decorated with the obligatory fake palms and bamboo and some Christmas decorations left over from last year.  When we arrived, most diners were tuned into the flat screen TV on the wall showing Asian music videos.

Our waitress who arrived promptly with some tea didn't even need to show us menus - we knew exactly what we wanted and we were not left waiting for long until our delicious bowls of pho ga were served. Note:  there are no spring rolls on the menu if you are that way inclined.

The chicken broth was extremely flavoursome and there were large chunks of lovely tender chicken.  The noodles were perfectly cooked and the usual garnish consisting of bean shoots and thai basil was fresh and plentiful.  The only thing missing was freshly chopped chilli - a chilli sauce was provided in a bottle if you wanted the extra kick.

Our stomachs were satisfied as were our wallets.  This place is definitely now in our top 5 places for pho in Footscray.
