December Foodspotting Eatup Orlando at Pho Vinh Restaurant

The cooler weather was a good time to meet up for a warm bowl of Pho and more Vietnamese dishes during the December Orlando Foodspotting Eatup. This month foodspotters and friends met at the Pho Vinh Restaurant to get a taste of Vietnamese cuisine and snap some food photos in typical Foodspotting fashion. The food was good and it was as fun to take photos of as it was to eat it.

My order: Pho with medium rare steak, flank, brisket. Chả Giò (Fried Spring Rolls). Cafe sua da (Vietnamese iced coffee)

This is one of my regular orders when I come to Pho Vinh on any given Sunday or week night. One of my favorite spots for Pho in Orlando and I have been coming here for while now. At this Eatup, first time guests gave good compliments on the Pho broth and Spring Rolls, which I both really like. The Cafe Sua Da, Vietnamese iced coffee, is the first thing I always order. This is a must if you love coffee.

All smiles and enjoying different types of Vietnamese Pho, noodle soups, and rice dishes.

The #100 menu item Thaâäp Caåm was popular that evening, with half of the group ordering it and everyone said they enjoyed. Thaâäp Caåm is a pork/chicken noodle soup, with special combo of shrimp, snow crabmeat, pork roast and wonton.
