If you are looking for a wide variety of Vietnamese food in a spacious setting in Highland, then stop by Kung Fu Pho’s new location in the former Jade Inn site in the shopping center at Boulder Avenue and Base Line.
The restaurant moved into the Jade Inn location on Monday, Nov. 15, at 7259 Boulder Ave. The owner is Alvin Nguyen.
Kung Fu’s original location is at 7243 Boulder Ave., Suite A1. That site opened in March 2018.
The Highland Community News decided to try the food at its new location this week.
Several customers chose to eat in the booths while others phoned in orders for take out.
The menu was so extensive that it is very overwhelming on a first visit. But a co-worker gave me suggestions on what to order.
So I tried the pho, a Vietnamese soup that was invented in the early 1900s. It consists of broth, rice noodles, tiny green onions and spices, along with a choice of beef or chicken.
The signature combo at Kung Fu Pho is slices of steak, flank, brisket, tendon, tribe and beef meatballs.
Customers can try a variety of meat combinations as well as shrimp, seafood, chicken or fish balls soup.
I tried the filet mignon soup ($12.99), which had green onions, large pieces of steak and rice noodles. It was served in a large soup bowl so be sure and arrive hungry.
Guests can also try rice or egg noodle soup, vermicelli noodle soup, fried rice, pan fried rice noodle and pan fried egg noodle.
Kung Fu also serves vegetarian dishes and Vietnamese baguette sandwiches including barbecue pork and barbecue beef.
Kung Fu also has appetizers including egg rolls, fried calamari and chicken wings. Prices range from $2.99 for two, to $6.99 for four.
I tried the traditional egg rolls, which came with a sweet sauce. They were very flavorful.
Most of the dishes are from $10.99 on up.
Kung Fu is at 7259 Boulder Ave. in Highland. Business hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
