Located in the shopping center shared with the United Artists theater and 24-hour fitness, Pho Le serves up traditional Vietnamese food to the masses. When we entered the restaurant not too long after they opened that day, we were quickly seated at an available table. We were provided with menus and water. Not too long after, a server came by to take our order, but we were not ready yet. After reviewing the menu for a bit longer, we were ready to order.
Today, we decided to order the grilled pork spring rolls, the grilled pork and egg roll vermicelli rice noodles, and the rare steak beef pho with wonton added. The grilled pork spring rolls tasted OK, but we had tried much better spring rolls at Quan Nem Ninh Hoa. The rolls went well with the provided peanut sauce. The vermicelli rice noodles had some very tasty peeled shrimp on top that were peeled very well all the way to the tail. The grilled meat was flavorful, which went well with the noodles. The dishes also came with bean sprouts, thinly sliced cucumber, and cabbage. The broth from the pho was very flavorful and reminded me of the flavorful broth from Saigon Restaurant on Fruitridge Road. There were adequate amounts of sliced beef in the soup, which went well with the large amount of noodles in the large-sized pho. I did end up adding some hoisin sauce to the soup for additional flavor.
Overall, Pho Le serves up some tasty Vietnamese food in South Sacramento. Service is quick, and prices are reasonable. There are plenty of items on the menu, and all are Vietnamese dishes. If you are in the South Sacramento and Elk Grove areas, then Pho Le would be a nice pho spot to visit without having to drive up to Stockton Boulevard.
