Nursing a Pho obsession

It is no secret that I love food especially when it is of the non Anglo-Australian variety. As long as it is packed with flavour, spicy and a little bit hot, I am as happy as.

Ever since going to Vietnam about 8 years ago (has it really been that long?) I have fallen in love with the food and have never stopped enjoying a good bowl of Pho with some spring rolls.

I have been past U&I Pho 24 a couple of times and I’ve always wanted to go in and try their Pho.

I wasn’t disappointed.

I tried the Mi Do Bien Kho along with Fresh Spring Rolls and Stuffed Chicken Wings. When they appeared I couldn’t wait to tuck in.

The Pho was great; I loved the coriander on top as well as everything underneath. It wasn’t just liquid and had the usual fish balls etc as well as also lots prawns and fresh salad. Totally lovely and very filling J

With a distinct mushroom flavour, the chicken wing was lovely and I would recommend it. The Rolls with the pulled pork (?) was perfect.

Gesha Coffee’s a new kid on the corner

I love trying new cafés, especially if I have been a bit of anticipation.

I’ve gone past Gesha on the bus for a few months and I couldn’t wait to try it as that side Freo is a bit low on cool places to eat and caffeinate.

While the view isn’t the prettiest but the parking out the front is a bonus.

Gesha’s décor is cool and the easy chairs were conducive to a nice catch-up with friends.

The menu was quirky and I thought the Pulled Beef Brioche was great. The size was perfect (I ate it with my tiny hands, no problems) and the beef worked well with the chutney as well as good value.

The hand cut royal blue fries were perfection and the highlight of my visit.

Gesha’s coffee wasn’t bad and they sell it by the bag for those of us who want to buy beans from our local café.
