Eating Well in Riverside: Pho 99

A great place for lunch or dinner with kids is Pho 99 on La Sierra. Their food is tasty and very comforting. Let's put this way, after my baby was born, I sent my husband there for take out.

There's Pho in abundance, of course. (For those of you who haven't yet had Vietnamese food, it's a wonderful soup with rice noodles and various cuts of meat. You add as much hot sauce and chillies as you want or none if you prefer.) They also have fresh spring rolls with shrimp and fried egg rolls, both of which our little girl loves. Then there are the noodle and rice dishes with wonderful charbroiled pork and pork paste (a kind of sliced sausage), among many other choices. And of course, what sets Vietnamese food apart from most other cuisines (for me, at least) is the salad greens (plus plenty of fresh basil and bean sprouts) that accompany most meals, so the guilt is minimal.

And if you're a coffee drinker, you must try their iced Vietnamese coffee. Forget Starbucks, you haven't had had real coffee (or been really truly awake) until you've had iced Vietnamese coffee.

You can find Pho 99 at:
4557 La Sierra Ave
Riverside, CA 92505
(951) 688-2671
