Soup, Salad, and Sandwiches, Vietnamese Style
Pho is a party that I’m coming a bit late too, but, as the old adage says, better late than never, right?
6-1-Pho, located on High street in Clintonville, has something for everyone. From the a variety of pho, which you can have either as a soup bowl, rice bowl, or salad bowl (I went for the salad bowl, ammmmmmazing.), four different kinds of Bahn Mi sandwiches, (meatball, chicken, pork, or vegetable), spring rolls, salad rolls, the most bad ass iced coffee you can find in the city, and my favorite canned Thai iced tea that I hadn’t found since living in Portland.
You go through the line, Chipotle style, adding whatever you prefer to your meal of choice. I went for it, loading it up because I wanted to make sure that I tried all of the flavors, on all of the things… however, I had to stay away from the shrimp. That pesky shrimp allergy thing, plus, I’d forgotten my epipen, and didn’t feel like rolling those dice.
Lisa and Ian, the husband and wife duo that owns 6-1-Pho invited the group of us Columbus Food Bloggers in to hear their story and try out the menu, and all of it was delish.
That evening, we met both Lisa and Ian that evening, both are friendly, so make sure that you say hi when you stop in.
6-1-Pho was started by husband and wife team Lisa Bui & Ian Capotosta. Ian, a trained chef with a degree in culinary arts combined with Lisa’s family recipes passed down by generations, the dynamic duo created 6-1-Pho. The goal for the couple was to complement the fast casual dining lifestyle by creating quality, healthy and delicious Vietnamese food with the freshest ingredients. All based on Bui family recipes. – 61pho.com
