Pho Feel'n

Whenever a new place to eat opens up in town, we like to visit it then we talk about it all the way home. Does anyone else do this?  We decided to try a new Asian Cuisine restaurant in town during restaurant week called "Pho Feel'n.

As we entered, we were greeted by a very friendly staff and a cute little hostess as my eyes were drawn to the original rustic wood floors of the old building and rows of pillows along the wall seating in the dining area. I'm weird, so I chose to sit in a chair at the table instead of a pillow lined bench. I just can't touch loose throw pillows in a public place not knowing who or how many people have been wollaring on them. That's just me. But it was cute. 

After we were seated, we took a look at the menu and made our choice. Or should I say choices. We ordered twice! We had intentionally decided to just share a few different appetizers as our meal. We ordered the Lemongrass chicken skewers, Fresh Summer Rolls with peanut sauce and Spring rolls.

While we waited, I decided to try a bubble tea. I have always wanted to try one. After the waitress explained the different flavors and some of the customer favorites, I decided on the Thai Tea flavor (I think). It was creamy and made me think of a caramel or butterscotch flavored milkshake. 
Bubble tea is a tea based drink with milk or fruit and chewy tapioca balls and jelly added. 

I loved this bubble tea. It was fun slurping the large chewy tapioca balls through the extra fat straw they supplied.

Once we finished our appetizers as a meal, we were still not satisfied (I really should have stopped here) so we decided to share the "Pork Banh Mi". 

This was on french bread with marinated pork, Japanese mayonnaise, cilantro and carrots. No complaints on this sandwich either as we devoured it in few quick bites. Yum.

What did we think about it?

Everything we ate was delicious and made with fresh ingredients. The meats were tender and the breads were so soft, it melted in our mouth. We thought the Spring rolls were the best we ever had. Even though everything was made as ordered, we did not have to wait a long time on our meal. Service was quick and the staff was very friendly and informative. 

They are adding some new items to the menu according to their facebook page
We will definitely visit again. We have even talked about just stopping in and getting a take out of just Spring rolls alone. Seriously, They were the best..

If you are looking for a new place in to eat in Gastonia,

  2. Yummy, everything looks so good.
    I would feel the same way about the pillows.
    It is rare that a new restaurant opens up around here (not enough people I guess) but when one does we go and check it out.

  3. the bubble tea sounds intriguing.

  4. Thanks for sharing such a great review! I think I'll have to visit the next time I'm in Gastonia. It seems like it would make a good stop after a visit to the Schiele Museum there. I like taro bubble tea best and hope to find it there. Great post.

  5. Oh I love drinks with those balls in them! You order just the way I would - appetizers - my favorite - and I love that you ordered some more since you weren’t full! Looks so cute too.

  6. I am obsessed with bubble tea and Pho soup! It is like chicken noodle soup on steriods!! YUM!
