Diners invited to experience a signature Vietnamese dish in Silver City

By - Feb 3rd, 2014 12:53 pm

With frigid temperatures forecasted throughout February, the Silver City District invites diners from the Greater Milwaukee area to Phobruary, a unique opportunity to warm yourself up while experiencing Pho, a traditional Vietnamese soup. On Fridays and Saturdays in February, three restaurants in Silver City – the “Pho Capital of Milwaukee” – will offer Pho at the special price of $5 per bowl. After trying the various Pho options, individuals may vote for their preferred restaurant online at www.silvercitydistrict.org. The winner will be recognized at the end of Phobruary.

The Silver City District, nestled between Miller Park and the Mitchell Park Domes on National Avenue, features three authentic international restaurants participating in Phobruary every Friday and Saturday in February:

So, what is Pho? It’s a traditional Vietnamese soup that is growing in popularity as a cultural experience. It delivers a complex combination of flavors that dance on the tongue’s taste buds. It combines noodles with a choice of thinly-sliced beef, chicken or shrimp, and also offers a multitude of garnishes and fresh herbs to tailor the soup to individual preferences. These typically include Thai Basil, sprouts, cilantro, limes, jalapeño, sauces, peppers, and other items. This delicious combination of flavors will satisfy your hunger by the time you get to the bottom of the bowl.

The Silver City Business District, located just minutes from the Menomonee Valley, I-94, and downtown Milwaukee, offers amenities such as the Hank Aaron State Trail, the Urban Ecology Center, Three Bridges Park, Miller Park, and the Mitchell Park Domes. Silver City is one of Milwaukee’s most diverse and vibrant neighborhoods, blending historic architecture with exciting retail and ethnic dining opportunities. With its rich collection of international restaurants, one can travel the world without leaving the neighborhood. For more information visit www.silvercitydistrict.org.
