So yes, we know it is not actually pronounced “foe” but the fact is the name is only clever if you use the Americanized pronunciation so just do, for shits and giggles.
This place is in an innocuous strip mall in Mid City. A strip mall where Burger King, Subway and a Taco Del Mar are also located. They all should simply shutter their doors and hang their collective heads in a gesture of shame and respect to MoPho.
The cocktail and beer list is whimsical and serious at the same time – I enjoyed a Violette Femme while one of our dining companions got a frozen old fashioned which was essentially a bourbon soaked bubble tea milkshake with a big ass straw and a heat sealed top so this thing could be shaken at regular intervals.
We started with a roasted cauliflower dish to share and then some wings- all of it finger licking good.
Then we went on to a selection of Pho or Noodle/Rice bowls….no one talked while they ate. In fact it felt like you might be interrupting an intimate moment….so you didn’t.
The atmosphere is casual and there is a great little courtyard out back where they allegedly roast a pig on occasion. They also sell their very cool MoPho shirts but didn’t have any sizes when we were there—looks like we will need to go back next time we are in town.
