I eat a lot. A whole lot of f Thai food that is. I have an obsession with Thai dishes. If I was on death row for committing a capital crime, my last meal would be Kra-pow gai. That's basil leaf chicken for non kon-thais (thai people)
A long time ago my ex and I would always giggle whenever we heard people say "Can we order the FAT Thai. I know sometimes the menu reads FAT thai, but really you should pronounce it phut thai or pad thai.
So yesterday I went out with my lil mentor and I took him randomly to Hermosa Beach and we parked right in front of a PHO restaurant. I thought we were going to eat random Pizza or hamburgers next to the pier but Pho presented a great opportunity.
I know Pho isn’t Thai, but I can’t help but right about Pho. It was a eventual progression of drinking so many Thai soups. Pho is a bit lighter than the creamy coconut Thai soups, and that’s why I like it.
Number Nine is located at 1342 Hermosa Ave. and in my opinion it is over hyped , but in a pinch it did the trick and considering how there isn’t Pho places near the beachfront, I could tell how this place is always full.
The service is slow and its overpriced. The broth seemed from a pre-made or the frozen variety. Service not included, I give this place a 2/5. I’ve had way better Pho. Namely in Rowland Heights. I Love the SGV.
