Pho Cong Ly Annandale

9 May

When we relocated to the Springfield area, we were excited to be near one of his favorite Vietnamese restaurants from years ago. Unfortunately, Pho Cong Ly Backlick Road had closed up shop and left before we were able to move in. Imagine my delight when driving to Annandale I noticed a Pho Cong Ly sign in another shopping center off Braddock Road.

We scoped it out last week as I was in dire need of pho. True to his memory, the cha gio (crispy spring rolls) are still top notch. The goi cuon (summer rolls) rice paper rolls were too wet and breaking apart. Tasty, but broken. Hey, it was 8:30 PM and they closed at 9. I’ve learned not to expect the best when folks are trying to close up for the night.

Their pho was OK, but per usual Pho 75 is still the winner. We’ll definitely be back for other dishes as it’s closer than trekking to Eden Center for other prepared dishes when I don’t want to cook.

It appears as though they’ve adopted a new management style, which means a sparkling restaurant, merchandise (Cha Gio T-shirts, anyone?) and credit card machines. FTW.
