Maybe it was a bad omen that it took us three attempts to eat at Pho Me. The first was a Monday, and we discovered the restaurant is closed on that particular day. We arrived a few minutes after closing time on our second attempt. Our most recent visit, on a “chilly” north Florida evening, resulted in us getting in the door, but leaving unsatisfied.
The restaurant offers steaming bowls of noodle soups, noodle/rice salads, bahn mi (sandwiches), and various sides. The restaurant was empty, and we took our time to look over the entire menu. Pho (pronounced fuh) is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, noodles, herbs and meat. Great pho in Tallahassee has been elusive, and we both hoped Pho Me would fill this void. I ordered a bowl of pho with rare sliced beef while Kirsten opted for the pho with chicken.
We took a seat at a small table. Several bottles of sauces, including Sriracha and hoisin, sat on the tables. While we waited for our pho, a plate of condiments was slid onto the table. Fresh basil, sliced jalapenos, bean sprouts, and lime wedges filled the small dish. For more on Pho Me read the full review on Tallahassee.com.
