PHO! noodles & bubble tea (Fairview Heights)
Opened in April of 20222 with great pho, bubble tea, and spring rolls. When the owner saw me with a baby, a booster seat appeared. When my baby dropped her spoon, the owner practically ran over with a new one. The food and tea were great. The writing on the posted menu was small and I would have loved a vermicelli noodle dish. One of the staff said they are still working on their menu and I am excited for that. As a new restaurant, I loved my first try!
