I'm American but I was born and grew up in Vietnam. When I was in Casablanca, I wanted to see what Vietnamese food tastes like in Africa. I had the chance to taste Pho (the famous Vietnamese beef noodle soup or Soupe tonkinoise, as it's called on the menu). For 5 EUR, it's reasonable for Casablanca, which I found to be a lot more expensive than Marrakech. The portion is rather small but that's relative. A bowl of Pho in Paris, USA, Australia, or Vietnam would be a lot bigger. In fact, you could actually swim in a bowl of Pho in the US--it's usually very big. The broth here was decent. The rare beef slices were tender. The noodle was slightly different from what you'd have in Vietnam. There seemed to be very little fresh herbs and veggie besides a few bean sprouts, coriander and spring onions--perhaps catering to local Moroccan taste. We also tried Vietnamese spring rolls but because this is a Muslim country, pork is replaced by chicken, making it not very authentic but I guess you have to adapt. This appetizer is only average. Before the meal was brought out, Vietnamese pickled carrot was offered as "amuse bouche"--very nice and authentic. It's free. The decor is very beautiful, warm, and inviting. Service was good--we got there late and there were not many customers.
