Pho 78 in Pembroke Pines

by jem614

Not far from the Green Papaya in Miami Lakes, we found Pho 78 in Pembroke Pines.  Pho 78 is a “cafeteria-like” restaurant in a small shopping center.  It lacks the charm of Green Papaya but still draws you in with its promise of delicate soups and vietnamese cuisine.

I tried the summer rolls filled with tofu and vegetables.  I wasn’t extremely impressed as the wraps were not exactly what I was expecting though the sauce was good.  My mother had the fried egg rolls  and she did enjoy them.

The Boba tea smoothie here is a little different.  They serve it with whipped cream which makes the smoothie quite decadent.  I would probably have preferred it without the whip cream.

All in all, I found it to be just on the “ok” side.  There aren’t many options for vegetarians but it will do the job if you’re in for a Boba smoothie fix (just ask for no whip).  Meat eaters may find this place fits them better as I’ve heard several of their “meat” dishes are quite good.  Maybe this is just not a place for veggies to roost.

BOBA Station Bubble Tea- Popping Bubble Fun

This is the Litchi (this is how they spelled it) Boba Tea “bubble”.  If you’ve been reading us for a while, you know Ashley and I are a little fanatic about Boba Tea.  Last night, I wandered around Hard Rock cafe with the hubby waiting for 1/2 time to finish on the UM game and stumbled upon the Boba Station Food Truck.  I was so excited to try I could barely contain myself, my husband was standing a little ways back from me trying to hide his embarrassment while I snapped pictures and giggled with glee.  Something about being a foodie makes you geekier about food than everyone else.  Seriously, who gets excited about trying different brands of Boba Tea?

This is the wonderful Peach Green Tea Boba with Litchi bubbles. Lychee, as you probably already know, is normally a kind of slimy, round, fruit that tastes quite good.  The combination of Peach and Green Tea with the Litchi was perfect.  What a fantastic, light refreshment!!  The bubbles are not like regular ones, they actually burst with juice inside.  My husband refused to taste it, thinking it looked like a science experiment but every juicy squish was delicious.

Boba Station makes their rounds in Miami and Broward, to track them (or stalk them) go to http://www.bobastation.com/   or you can go to http://miamifoodtrucks.com/2011/05/seminole-hard-rock/ and double check to see if they are there but I believe they are at Hard Rock every Thursday for the Food Truck invasion.
