The Chicken and Asparagus Salad from Angelina’s Pho & Grill Glendale AZ

This is a small sleek and modern Asian Restaurant located in a strip mall with an outdoor patio. It’s hard to do a review on this restaurant because they make changes to the menu often.

Angelina’s opened up a few years back as a Vietnamese Restaurant. In the opening weeks they had some problems with service and Pho dishes weren’t being served with the correct condiments possibly due to service and management.

Angelina’s has come a long LONG way since then. At this time you can still get a variety of Pho, Pho like dishes, Thai Style Curries, Stir Fries, Beef Tenderloins, Salmon Consommé, weekend sushi, a bar and much much more.

I think one of the tastiest meals I had in all of Glendale recently was the Chicken and Asparagus Salad from Angelina’s. The dark meat Chicken was moist, infused with flavors and brushed with an exotic sauce. The salad was made with fresh crisp vegetables, grilled asparagus and crisp noodles. I think the clear sauce was fish sauce to use as a dip for the chicken but I never tasted fish sauce that was so layered with flavors before. The white sauce for the salad was also mysteriously delicious. I forking don’t know what it was but it was so good they should sell it. This salad is one of the most delicious dishes you can find in Glendale. I know a salad like this would cost $12-$14. in Scottsdale. I hope the menu isn’t a misprint because Angelina’s was only charging $7.09 for this great salad. I note I would still be happy with this salad if it cost more.

I don’t know of any other Asian Restaurant that serves an Asian Salmon Consommé.

This dish I had a while back but I still remember how fresh the salmon tasted and it just melted in my mouth. This dish was very fragrant and unique. It was like an inspiration of Vietnamese, Thai and French all in one.

Hot and Spicy

Hot and Spicy

My husband had this one. It was something like Pho but with a twist and was spicy. My husband almost always orders the Pho and pho like dishes here because it’s his favorite from the Vietnamese Restaurants we tried. It’s never watery and seasoned so well you don’t really have to add the sauces to the pho to get the right taste. I’ve had beef pho here it a long time back from here and all I remember is that it was a more intense of a beef flavor than other pho’s I tried. It seemed richer and the beef was tastier.

Yellow Curry Chicken

This might have been the best Yellow Curry I ever had. I still remember that it was very infused with Thai Basil and the chicken here is excellent. This dish also had an unusually large varied amount of vegetables in it including cauliflower, green beans, bok choy, and several other vegetables.

The Chicken is always good in any dish you pick at Angelina’s. I’ve had Chicken Pho at other Vietnamese Restaurants in the area and none of them were close to as good as the way Angelina’s makes it. It wasn’t lacking in chicken taste and the chicken in the bowl was moist and flavorful and an extra generous portion.

I’e been going to Angelina’s for years. The food has always been good. They always offer dishes you won’t find at other Vietnamese Restaurants like the La Vong Style Alaskan Cod in Turmeric and fresh dill, the menu is always changing, pricing is reasonable (I don’t think anything is over $15.00). The atmosphere is stylish and modern.Patio seating is available. I do note service is usually good but a few times it was a miss just like most restaurants.
