Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Now don't fight me on this, but Asian food is the best kind of comfort food. Nothing relaxes the body and the stomach more than sipping on a hot hearty broth, dipping the dumplings in some chili oil and crunching away on wontons. So if you're looking to find delicious Asian dishes, head to the Pho King in Delhi and wrap yourself in the warmth of yummy food. From Chimichangas and Mongolian style Lamb chops to Pad Thai, Tempura Prawn and Bao buns, they have it all

The Vietnamese Pho at the Pho King is one of the best kind of soupy noodles we've had, they come head to head with the Tibetan thukpas, thenkthuk and the Chinese/Japanese ramen. It's simple science, a warm bowlful of meaty broth, thin noodles that can latch on to the sauce and tender juicy pieces of meat. What's better than that?

Maybe a steaming bucket of dimsums, tender spiced meat that is tucked away in thin sheets and filled with juicy awesomeness. We would recommend having the chicken wrapped in pok choy, chicken corriancer, the veg chive and the prawn har gau. They are the absolute best!

We would also recommend trying the bao buns, we've seen them so many time on TV shows and movies, but the actual thing tastes way better than you would expect. Soft buns encasing spicy filling, we recommend the bahn bao, teriyaki chicken and the char sui pork.

Pho king also serves Indian staple curries, burgers, sandwiches, and burritos and though they are an Asian chain, the dishes are amazing!

And the best part?

The outlet offers unending dimsum dinner on Monday and Tuesdays at just ₹699 and doctors, lawyers, and Army personnel and their family members get a 15% discount.

On Wednesday you can catch the screening of Hollywood classics such as Fight Club, Django Unchained, Pulp Fiction, Harold and more. While the throwback Thursdays are dedicated to melodies of the era gone by.

Not just that, you can also be a part of workshops held every afternoon on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, while in the evening you can await a live band performance.

Now that. Is a power packed week. So if you're looking for something fun to light up your week, head to the Pho King in Delhi. Happy Eating!
