I apologize for not writing about my Denver restaurants experiences over the past few months. To be honest, I was trying my best not to eat out in hopes of getting my eating habits back on track post marathon (update: it worked!!). Therefore, I jumped at the opportunity to try Pho for the first time at a restaurant grand opening with my friend Keshia from work!
Now, the title of this article is a little misleading because “Pho Kitchen Bar & Grill” is actually in Boulder. HOWEVER, I had such an incredible experience that I would suggest anyone that lives in Denver to make the trip out to Boulder to try this authentic Vietnamese cuisine!
Located just off the Baseline Road exit in Boulder, the Pho Kitchen Bar & Grill is in the perfect spot!! It is just a short 5 minute drive to Chautauqua Park and the CU Boulder Campus. With its dual level seating, modern decor and touch of Vietnamese culture, it makes for the ideal place to warm up after a nice winter hike or even escape from studying for a little while.
Granted, I’ve never had Pho before. HOWEVER, after my experience at Pho Kitchen I think I am going to have a hard time finding another Pho restaurant that compares! Keshia had to help me order because my knowledge of Vietnamese food prior to this was literally zero. She had me try the steak pho which came with all of the fixings (jalapeños, basil, sprouts, lime) on the side for extra flavor. And boy was it YUMMMMMY!!!! Seriously people, if you haven’t tried pho you need to and this is the perfect place to do it because I’m telling you, it was that great. Now, my chopstick skills, not so great…..definitely need some work on those (don’t be fooled, the pics below are of Keshia, not me). But hey, it just gives me another excuse to go back to Pho Kitchen right?!?!
I hope the next time you find yourself in Boulder, for whatever reason, that you venture to Pho Kitchen Bar & Grill.
