Mama’s Buoi Pho Festival
If your love of pho is even half what ours is, then you’re going to love this. Mama’s Buoi is hosting a pho festival, yep, you read that right, a whole menu full of the best un-pho-gettable dishes to keep your cravings satisfied. The menu takes everything you know and love about pho and manages to incorporate it into a cocktail, rice paper rolls and even ice cream. Obviously the star of the meal is the ultimate seafood pho, but we’ll let you be the judge. Get in quick, cause this menu is only available until the end of the month!
When: Until the end of August
Where: Mama’s Buoi, Surry Hills and Crows Nest
