I went to Pho Mimi once when it just opened a couple of years ago and haven’t been back since. It’s just that there are better alternatives on the block. They’re on the same plaza as Super H Mart in Duluth. The place is immaculate, big, and bright.
I judge a Vietnamese restaurant’s credibility by their pho. Pho Mimi’s is just okay. It could use a little more kick — make it bolder and more flavorful. It’s nothing fantastic but good enough to satisfy a (small) craving. They have this wonton and seafood pho that I haven’t seen in many places.
They have the usual com or rice plates. Pho Mimi’s version comes with a crunchy fried shrimp cake. A nice touch, actually. I had the porkchop rice plate among other things and I found the porkchop odd-tasting. Too sweet, perhaps.
Pho Mimi has an extensive bubble tea selection. My absolute favorite is their warm taro milk tea. It’s so good and comforting with just the right amount of sweetness and lots of taro taste. For those not in the know, taro is similar to a purple potato but starchier. It is used in many Asian dishes such as soups, savory pies, and desserts among other things.
Verdict: I went to Pho Mimi because they just newly opened. I haven’t been back. I wasn’t impressed with their pho. And their prices are $2 more than everywhere else. For great Vietnamese food, I would go to What The Pho up the street (2 blocks) or Phoenix Noodle. Better yet, for convenience, the one inside Super H Mart makes good pho.
