Pho is for Lovers adds some delicious culture to Upper Greenville

I’m no expert on Vietnamese food, but I can say that I found some that serves up a delicious lunch for $6. In my recent article for neighborsgo, I wrote on Pho is for Lovers and its owner Diana Tang, who’s lucky enough to have her mom leading the cooking in the back.

I had the grilled pork banh mi sandwich for a recent lunch. Tang relates this to a french baguette, which is probably valid with the soft roll of bread. It veers from French with the fillings, though. The pork was crisp on the outside with a surprising burst of flavor when you bite in. This sandwich is really worth dissecting and having the meat to itself, but the vegetables complement it quite perfectly. Cucumber, pickled carrots and daikon, cilantro and some weak jalapenos may make you keep the sandwich in tact.

Rusty Fenton, owner of Rusty Taco, tells me the Vietnamese iced coffee with condensed milk is a must-try; but various teas and a Vietnamese jelly drink also grace the beverage list and Tang says bubble tea may come later on. The menu is fairly simple, says Tang, who might incorporate different dishes as weekend specials later on. For now, the banh mi sandwiches and pho are big sellers.

The menu at Pho is for Lovers was created to be simple and easy for anyone to order, according to owner Diana Tang.
