Respond to Review of Pho La Jolla
Review: Not bad. I'm harsh and non committal on any non veg restaurants - but alas - am sometimes in mixed company (omni/carni) and must eat somewhere that isn't veg. I'll only do this now when someone else is paying. Anyhoo - on to the review :) I've passed by this place a thousand times - finally went when my dates carni brother was in town and refused to eat at a veg spot. They had 10 vegan items on a 75 item menu. I went for the Ga Chay and Rice (Vegan chicken), while my sweets had the Pho Tofu. There was nothing to spectacular about either of our dishes, except they were the only ones in the restaurant that didn't smell disgusting. Price was worth it for the portion size, and truthfully, I did like the chicken (vegan) though it wasn't the best veg chick I've had. My sweets Tofu was typical meat restaurant tofu - a little too puffy, too soft and too lacking in flavor. Her veggies that came with it were mediocre but typical for a non organic restaurant. All in all a good experience for a mixed eating crowd. The 2 carnivores in the group raved about their dishes - so in a pinch - I would recommend for those with meat eaters if you can't talk them into one of the many area veg restaurants. We fed 4 and all had enough to eat and drink for $57 plus tip - not bad. If I ever go back I will most likely try the Chay (vegetarian) Sandwich. Also have soymilk, teas, coconut milk and fresh juices.
