Its not often we leave the inner sanctum of Sydney and its innerwest enclave but this occasion – we head out west to Bankstown and check in at Pho An. Pho An is widely considered as one of Sydney’re premier Pho joints and this was a random overcast day and you can see from the pics – its a full house and there’s queues out the door. They’re killing it! Its great eating pho and what you’ll get here is a ginormous bowl of Pho that appears under a minute after you order it. They have it piping hot and ready to go round the back. We’re not kidding. We ordered it. It appeared.
Pho An’s a buzzy good eat with a clean aromatic broth. We’ve heard complaints of too much MSG in it leading to dry mouths/thirstiness after but that really wasn’t our experience. It’s a premium Pho experience – the noodle is $14 but lets be honest, you’d pay that for a sandwich in the innerwest and dessert at a lot of places. Its far but we had a good enough time here and Bankstown was worth a walk around.
