MILWAUKEE — Nothing warms the soul during cold Wisconsin winter months quite like a warm meal. For the month of February, or should we say 'Phobruary', you can get a $5 bowl of pho from two Milwaukee restaurants.
'Phobruary' is an annual promotion that highlights two restaurants that serve Vietnamese food in Milwaukee's Silver City neighborhood, Thai Bar-B-Que and Vientiane Noodle Shop. Thai Bar-B-Que special will include a $5.99 bowl of pho with $1.00 crab rangoons from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for all dine-in and carry-out orders. Vientiane Noodle Shop is selling $5 bowls of pho, but only for dine-in customers.
For those that are unfamiliar, pho is a Vietnamese soup. It has thinly-sliced beef/chicken/shrimp/vegetables, and garnished with basil, sprouts, cilantro, jalapeño, sauces, peppers, and more.
Thai Bar-B-Que is located at 3417 W. National Ave, and Vientiane Noodle Shop is at 3422 W. National Ave.
'Phobruary' is an initiative to bring more attention to the Silver City neighborhood and the restaurants and businesses there. It is put on by the Silver City Business District and VIA CDC which is a community development organization.
