Geelong has its very own destination for some of the best Vietnamese food in the area with this well known Torquay institution having opened a second location here in February this year.
Located on the corner of Pakington St and Gordon Ave, Geelong West and housed in an former playground equipment business complete with astrourf! The space has been transformed into a restaurant and cafe for up to 130 with plenty of communal outdoor dining tables, loads of greenery and a couple of hanging lanterns to top it all off.
Standout meals include pho bO-Rare beef and brisket rice noodle soup. It has a clear rich broth that has been simmering away for long over 12 hours, hits the spot any time of day and Bun Bowls-Vermicelli noodle salad with fresh herbs, mixed pickle, crushed peanuts and dipping sauce to dress. With your choice of chargrilled chicken, pork or vegetable spring roll. Absolute mouth-watering stuff!
Pholklore has truly embraced the cuisine and have introduced pho-inspired cocktails. From the Hendrick Lamar to the Pho White to the Tom Mary Bloody Yum, there’s no meat in these creations but the aromatics of the famous dish remain: cinnamon, Vietnamese mint, Thai basil, tom yum and fresh coriander, plus some generous splashes of gin, white rum and vodka for good measure.
Open for walk ins only-Monday-Friday, 12-3pm + 5-9pm, Saturday-Sunday, 12-9pm.
