Fragrant steam rises from the big bowl, the perfect thing on this frigid February night in the city. Cilantro, lime, basil, beef — I am finally having a bowl of Pho, a Vietnamese noodle soup. I have been driving by this little restaurant for years and wanting to try it. It comes out of the kitchen with a plate of bean sprouts and other condiments to arrange on top. I add some hoisin and sriracha sauces from squeeze bottles at the table. Delicious.
Pho Mai is located at 570 Main Street in Middletown, CT.
