Just when you thought Vietnamese cuisine in Houston couldn’t get any better, Les Noo’dle in Montrose hits the scene with much buzzed about pho, a savory noodle soup. Pho starts with an authentic broth that is slowly cooked for 24 hours, resulting in a rich, hearty and savory base. Les Noo’dle roasts spices like cinnamon, star anis, cardamom and cloves to perfectly complement the meat options like free range chicken and beef. Add on options include filet, brisket, beef shank, chicken heart and quail eggs. Further, the vegan pho option includes a vegetable broth made from fresh, natural herbs and vegetables, with the option to add king and enoki mushrooms, lotus root, zucchini and tofu. Lastly, Les Noo’dle promises fresh and handmade noodles that are all cooked to order adding to the overall pho experience.
Guests might even make a meal simply from the sides on the menu. Items like spicy cucumber salad, sous vide egg with steamed tofu, Vietnamese-style grilled corn, lotus with paddy herb and giblet salad, veal with paddy herb in chili oil and golden chicken egg with broth are exciting and filling options. Of course, true to its Vietnamese roots, Vietnamese iced coffee and assorted teas are available, along with cocktails and wine.
