TGIF! My family went out for dinner as the home cook is taking a break.
We went for Vietnamese cuisine as it’s been a while we had that. We went to Gia Minh Vietnamese Restaurant on Fraser St.
Gia Minh was not busy at about 6:30PM.
Although the restaurant was not busy, the service was a bit slow.
Ben and I shared a Gia Minh’s special combo, Combo A. We can have the option of rice or vermicelli and we picked vermicelli. It came with 2 brochettes and we had one pork and one chicken.
The combo also comes with a House Soup. It was a vegetable soup which came luke warm and I felt it was a bit fishy. I do not like luke warm soup.
Since the combo includes a salad roll and a deep fried spring roll, there is also a peanut sauce to go with the salad roll.
Nanzaro ordered the Bun Bo Hue which comes with “Hue” beef flank, ham, pork hock and rice noodle. The broth for the noodle soup was very hot which I like.
Arkensen ordered the Gia Minh Special Beef Noodle. The broth was also piping hot which is great.
The garnishes for the pho here are more elaborate which include bean sprouts, basil, mint, jalapeno, lime wedge and banana blossom.
