The Casual Restaurant Critic has been hearing about this place for a while, but never got around to visiting, until today when, at the suggestion of the always informed Better Half, he had lunch there. With the always charming Better Half of course.
The pho, which the Critic expected to be a watery broth with little flavor, turned out to be quite delicious and substantial, as were the two appetizers sampled -stuffed chicken wings (really) and rice paper spring rolls stuffed with lettuce and a shrimp or two. The Critic wasn’t crazy about the latter, but those chicken wings were really stuffed and tasty.
Service was very attentive and the owner, Robert, stopped by to chat and say hello.
Have the fruity tea, with passion fruit, and follow the meal with the fantastic Vietnamese iced coffee, strong and sweet and very refreshing.

Me encanta Phó, por rico y ligero! <3
I am once again printing your suggestions on new restaurants in Merida for our annual 2 month trip. I would like to try this one but I can’t find the address in your review.
Thanks Sharon! You’re right – maybe I am taking the Casual part of the Casual Restaurant Critic a little too far. They have a Facebook page that has a map, which is easier than me trying to explain!
Thanks, I found the address on facebook.
