Have you ever had snake, dear, buffalo, venison, and eel served on a hot grilling plate or as hot pot? If you like exotic meats and are up for an adventure, this is the place for you.
Pho Nuong is a Vietnamese restaurant specializing in exotic meats and traditional dishes that you wouldn't be able to find at any other Vietnamese restaurants.
This place is only open for dinner, and it gets pretty crowded, but the wait is never long. The decor is not classy, more of a rain forest theme. The walls are painted with green bamboos and trees all over. You will definitely feel like you're in some kind of forest.
I've been here several times and each time I was impressed with the food they make. The flavors of the dishes are very intense. I ordered the grilled plate with venison, it comes with rice papers, vermicelli noodles, and tons of fresh vegetables. You wrap all that stuff and dip it in the fish sauce, or if you don't mind the strong fish flavor, ask for the mam nem. My favorite dish is their stuffed calamari and their fried crab! Yummy!! It's a bit pricey, but you are paying for exotic meats and the experience of it. I highly recommend this place if you're interested in trying different food.
