Ad | Invite – We were kindly invited directly by Pho, to join some fellow Sheffield Foodies for their Christmas Supper Club. A 3 course Christmas set menu with a cocktail on arrival and 2 tables set-up festively for a group of selected food bloggers and their plus 1s.
Although a bit more of a chain restaurant than we usually visit, Pho is a family-run business that serves fresh Vietnamese Street Food daily at their restaurants (no central kitchen). Set in Leopold Square, their Sheffield restaurant is a modern, fairly dimly-lit venue and their menu offers lots of delicious Vietnamese goodies from Spring Rolls, to Curries to Vermicelli Noodle Dishes.
At the Supper Club the staff were attentive, ensuring we had enough drinks and that everyone’s food orders were received correctly (as we had pre-ordered) and were being enjoyed. There was a normal, and a Vegan Menu on offer and the restaurant serves gluten free choices too. I really enjoyed the evening here as well as the food.
Starters – As always, I like to make sure me & Ben order different dishes so that I can try more haha! Ben ordered the Pork Spring Rolls and I went for the Chicken Wings. My chicken wings were lovely and crisp and had a bit of a kick to them as well as being served with fresh chillies and sriracha sauce. There were LOADS! But as always I finished the lot. The Pork Spring Rolls were juicy, fresh, crispy and packed full. The waitress advised us to roll them in the large lettuce leaves they were served with, with the fresh mint leaves and then dip in the sauce. What a refreshing and delicious idea!! Vegan (prawn) crackers and sweet chilli sauce were served aplenty between us all too and were also lovely.
Mains – I opted for the Vermicelli Beef Noodles with a wok-fried lemongrass & chilli topping, fresh herbs, beansprouts, veggie spring roll & peanuts. A massive portion and what a good-looking dish with such mouthwatering fresh ingredients. I even used my chops sticks for a few minutes before giving in to asking to use a fork haha. This was a really tasty dish that I didn’t want to end. Ben went with the Chicken Curry. A fragrant curry a little bit like a mix of a thai curry and a satay curry with a lovely spice to it. Served with rice, this was another large portion which was a struggle to finish even between us but really was yummy.
Desserts – Already full from the other 2 courses which we had really enjoyed, dessert was possibly wasted on us a little. The Chocolate Truffle Slice was a bit like a mousse and was nice, served with ice cream. The Banana Fritters were a little strange for me and a bit much. I thought they may have come with caramel sauce but they were just served dry and the texture wasn’t my favourite thing. It reminded me of banana toasted sandwiches I had when I was little.
It was great to see some familiar faces and meet some new Foodies from the city too. All in all a really enjoyable evening and some gorgeous food. I would definitely eat here again.
