Taking its name from the ancient Vietnamese village of Hoi An, Pho Hoi An serves authentic Vietnamese cuisine to tired and hungry Hong Kong shoppers in San Po Kong’s Mikiki shopping mall along Prince Edward Road East. One of two locations – the other can be found in Tsim Sha Tsui – the San Po Kong outlet of the Pho Hoi An family is a breezy and bold Vietnamese restaurant that’s perfect for the whole family. Gather your friends and bring your biggest appetite for an unphogettable meal!
The Vietnamese village of Hoi An has been designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO, and it’s this village and the French, Japanese and Chinese cuisines that come together here that serve as inspiration for Hong Kong’s two Pho Hoi An restaurants. Like its sister restaurant, the Mikiki San Po Kong outlet captures the atmosphere of this ancient community by carefully preparing each dish in the most authentic way possible – something it seems that Hong Kong foodies have come to appreciate: Pho Hoi An is doing very well indeed! Perfect for a pick me up after a day’s shopping, this is the spot for fresh and vibrant Vietnamese cuisine.
The menu at Hong Kong’s Pho Hoi An is comprehensive, taking in Vietnamese classics like summer rolls, classic pho ga and pho bo soups and a range of Southeast Asian seafood specialties. One of the most authentic offerings in the busy Mikiki shopping mall along Prince Edward Road East, our advice is to begin exploring with traditional samplers like Pho Hoi An’s assorted platter for two – pork and shrimp rice paper rolls, pomelo salad, Hoi An deep-fried dumplings, pan-fried pork meat roll, Vietnamese spring rolls and prawn crackers – or chef’s recommendations like the Vietnamese-style stir-fried grouper with soy and oyster sauces (this is a Pho Hoi An signature, too). Remember, Pho Hoi An’s San Po Kong outlet is hugely popular, so book in advance to avoid disappointment!
