|Entertaining fish tank with faux fish|
In the depths of Chinatown, like many other restaurants there, you have to try not to judge it by it's hard to read sign, lack of decor, the random pop music radio channel they have playing, or by the hilariously entertaining fish tank full of faux fish bobbing about within.
|Egg Yolks in Milkshake Glass|
The Pho arrived almost immediately after ordering, allowing this ravenous group to dig in immediately. My dining companions said that the various cuts of feeb were extremely soft and tender. The broth itself was flavorful without over powering all the items within the bowl, and not at all salty or greasy. The noodles were soft and bountiful, soaking up the broth, while still providing some texture to the dish. The addition of the mildly spicy chili paste added a nice kick of heat without overwhelming anything.
|Bubbly iced egg yolk drink with soda|
We had all cringed at the idea of ordering the iced egg yolk with soda drink and agreed that it looked equally unappealing when presented to us. It was essentially a three part drink, a milkshake glass with a raw egg yolk within, a can of soda and a separate glass filled with ice. When we added the soda to the egg yolk it became a bubbly, frothy concoction. When it finally settled down, we stirred it and poured it into the glass with ice. It tasted surprisingly good, reminiscint of a malted milk, with a creamy texture.
Overall, we enjoyed our experience at Tau Bay and would return for both Pho and the iced egg yolk with soda drink!
