The verdict

It’s Monday morning and you’ve promised yourself only one glass of wine while you binge watch Married At First Sight. But the dinner party on last night’s episode proved all too much. Hence, that one glass turned to four, and the flashbacks of shouting at the television whilst clenching on the edge of the couch is as memorable as what we’re about to share with you (#noregrets). We know you’re probably craving a greasy burger—just something to ease the pain, but The Naughty Chef, which offers an authentic range of Vietnamese cuisine, is the go-to. Yep, we’re Pho-real. 

From the outset, this modest, hole in the wall spot will make you question if you’re at the right place. But trust us, once that spicy beef pho is placed in front of you (making dem’ olfactory receptors sing) you’ll be feeling both nice and naaaaughty. And yes, there’s only three ingredients needed for this soup—great broth, rice noodles, and chunks of meat. But these guys do it all oh-so-right. Add some lemon and chili (sidenote: not for the faint hearted) and those ‘ragrets’ of last night will soon disappear, and you’ll be feelin’ pho-king unreal. You’re welcome.
