Eating Out : Pho Laboratory Beijing

IMG_2273

No longer a new spot in ever changing Beijing, Pho Laboratory is hidden in a row of run down little houses in Sanlitun. The 20-seater has beautifully simple, industrial chic interiors done up by their architect proprietor. The Vietnamese coffee hits the spot and the noodles – well isn’t anything to write home about, but it’s not bad. Portions are generous, and you get quality imported beef to go along with your beef pho.

Love the simple set up with natural light flowing in through a skylight ceiling. The menu is small, and I would recommend sticking with Pho, perfect on days when you’re craving for a hot comforting bowl of soup. The rolls are a little blande and stuffed too heavily with vermicelli and missing the flavourful kick of a great Vietnamese spring roll. You can read a more raving review here from Kristen Lum the Beijing blogger/PR lady about town LumDimSum.

It’s tucked away and not the easiest place to find – so refer to Kristin’s blog for visual clues. It’s right opposite Great Leap Brewery – which you wouldn’t be able to miss.
